City of Surrey Cemetery Services and the Canadian Military Education Centre invite you to attend our free family event to remember and honour our Veterans, both past and present.

The ceremony starts at 10:45 am, with a moment of silence observed at 11:00 am, followed by a wreath laying. Poppies and Canadian flags will be provided for you to place on the graves of over 500 Veterans. We’ll have vintage WWII and onward military vehicles, and military experts will be present to answer questions.

This year’s event is made even more special due to the recent planting of an oak sapling that was planted to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the battle. The oak sapling is descended from an oak tree destroyed during the battle of Vimy Ridge.

Please join us for a hot dog and refreshments.
