 2008 Pender Island Remembrance Day Schedule

Monday, November 10th – CANDLELIGHT SERVICE

1:00 pm – Candles are lit by the children of Pender to honour our veterans.  Parade led by Pender Highlanders Pipe Band and Legion colour guard.

6:00 pm – Candles glow in the darkness over the crosses that mark too many places – as the sounds of a lone piper waft through the air.  A stirring moment.

Tuesday, November 11th – REMEMBRANCE DAY

10:45 am – Parade begins at Legion Cenotaph

11:00 am – Moment of silence, laying of wreaths and last post.

11:15 am – Service begins in Legion Hall, to be followed by refreshments and a day of remembering the debt we owe to the Veterans who fought and died so that we might be free.

Take some time from your day and show you care.
