Did you know that North Vancouver has the largest Remembrance Day parade and ceremony in the whole of Canada? Are you planning on being part of the throng that gathers by the cenotaph in Victoria Park on Thursday morning? If so, join Paul and I for a morning coffee before we walk to the park to take up our places in respect of Canada's armed forces.
We will meet at 9 am at the Starbuck's across from the Safeway on Lonsdale. We'll have a 45 minute coffee break there, and then walk over to the park at 9:45. The ceremony/parade doesn't begin until 10:30, but the crowd is thick by then, so we like to get to the park in time to get a spot near the front.
If you have a folding chair, bring it along for the waiting period, however once the ceremony begins most everyone will stand. Dress warmly everyone, including gloves and scarves, and comfortable waterproof footwear. You'll be standing for an hour! Also, if it looks like rain, be sure to bring an umbrella,
After the ceremony, Paul and I have to leave for Vancouver Island, but some of you may choose to follow the troops as they parade back to the Armouries. And after the parade, some of you might choose to head back to Lonsdale for lunch.
"Lest we forget..."
