Public Notice – Remembrance Day Service

October 14th, 2020

On behalf of The Royal Canadian Legion Bayview Branch #22

PUBLIC NOTICE: REMEMBRANCE DAY

The Royal Canadian Legion Bayview Branch #22 would like to notify the public regarding the status of the annual Remembrance Day Ceremony traditionally held at the River Valley Middle School.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic regulations and restrictions there will NOT be a Remembrance Day ceremony at the River Valley Middle School this year.

The RCL Branch #22 will be holding a private, invite only, ceremony at the Cenotaph on the corner of Woolastook and River Valley Drive.

In order to protect our Veterans so that they can pay respect to their comrades we request the public NOT attend this private event.

The Legion will be providing live coverage of this event via our facebook page, Bayview Branch #022 Royal Canadian Legion Grand Bay.

This year the distribution of Poppies will undoubtedly be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and possibly place a strain on Poppy Fund resources for Veterans. If you wish to donate to the 2020 Poppy Campaign and are unable to access a Poppy collection box please contact the Legion or Cory Ryan (333-0456).

We would like to thank the public for your understanding and support.
