Remembrance Day in White Rock goes virtual on Nov. 11

2020 Remembrance Day

The traditional Remembrance Day ceremony that takes place at the Cenotaph at White Rock’s City Hall is going virtual this year due to COVID-19.

The City is working with the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 8, to record a ceremony, complete with the traditional songs, readings and two minutes of silence.

The ceremony will be shown on the City’s Facebook page at facebook.com/whiterockcity starting at 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 11. The event is also available from the Legion’s Branch 8 Facebook page

Here is what you can expect at the online event:

  • O Canada and God Save the Queen, sung by Mark Donnelly, “Mr. O Canada”
  • The Last Post
  • Two minutes of silence
  • Lament
  • Rouse
  • Act of Remembrance

Poppies in the Window

The City is encouraging people in the community to show their support for veterans and those in active service by putting poppies in your front windows in the days leading up to Remembrance Day.

You can post pictures of your poppies on Twitter and Instagram by tagging #WhiteRockRemembers.

Darryl Walker
Mayor, City of White Rock

“Remembrance Day is a special time to recognize and honour those who have given so much to our country, fighting for the liberties we enjoy today. 

I want to thank our veterans, those in active service, those who have lost loved ones to war, as well as the cadets, police, firefighters and other first responders who gather on November 11th each year. Please know that our hearts and thoughts are with you as we broadcast the traditional Remembrance Day ceremony online for all to share.”
