    Unless mistaken, I believe there is a service at the Cenotaph in Grandview Park on Commercial drive, likely starting at 10:30 and a service at the monument in South Memorial park just off of 41st, likely starting at the same time.

    Mark,

    You are correct. There will be a parade and service at the Cenotaph in Grandview Park on Commerical Drive. The parade is going to start at approximately 10:30am.

    This year’s service will feature a squadron of Royal Canadian Air Cadets from 759 Falcon squadron, which has recently begun parading at Legion 179 every Wednesday night from 6:30pm-9:30pm. Royal Canadian Air Cadets is a youth organization aimed at teenagers from 12 to 18 years old. I highly recommend the program to everyone; go take a look at the Cadet program and 759 Falcon RCACS squadron on Wednesday.
