Remembrance Day 2015 in the Tri-Cities

Remembrance Day 2011 Tri-Cities Port Moody Coquitlam Port Coquitlam

It’s just over two weeks until Remembrance Day, which means that even though Halloween isn’t here yet it’s not too soon to plan how you’ll commemorate the day. For 2015 you can pay your respects at services in Belcarra, Port Moody, Coquitlam, and Port Coquitlam. Join fellow citizens and veterans in the Tri-Cities to remember the sacrifices that were made, and continue to be made, for our country.
