Remembrance Day

For Remembrace Day this year, all the Port Moody Station Museum did is put up the World War One Honour Roll and a banner again. It is rather fitting as there are only five veterans left in Canada who served in World War One. We also did a huge event for Canada Day with our local war historians.

We noticed that many people visited our blog by googling “Remembrance Day Port Moody.” We hope all these people found out that the Port Moody Royal Canadian Legion did have a ceremony yesterday.

We recommend in the future that everyone look for veterans’ events on the Veterans Affairs Canada website, though, as it is up to the events’ organizers to add their events, not all will be listed. Port Moody is not listed, but there are many more events for the rest of the year taking place across Canada and it acts as a timeline for military-related events from Canadian history.

(Many of Port Moody’s events are available through the community pages of both the Tri-City News and the Now newspapers.)

To make up for the lack of posts yesterday, board member and webmaster Darrell Penner submitted a poem he wrote for Remembrance Day.
