The City of Langley and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 21, invite the public to attend a dedication ceremony for the new cenotaph in Douglas Park on Wednesday, Nov. 9, ahead of Friday's Remembrance Day service.

Members of the Langley Legion will host the dedication at 2 p.m. in Douglas Park, 20550 Douglas Cres., to recognize the newly constructed monument as a symbol of the sacrifice of those who have and who continue to serve Canada during times of both war and peace.

On Friday, Nov. 11, the Remembrance Day Ceremony will muster at 10 a.m. at the Langley Legion, 20570 56 Ave., with the parade commencing at 10:25 a.m. just south of 56 Avenue on 206 Street  and proceeding south down 206 Street before turning west onto Douglas Crescent. The veterans will arrive at the Cenotaph at 10:50 a.m. and the ceremony will begin promptly at 11 a.m.

These two ceremonies will allow the public the opportunity to observe the new cenotaph, a sculptural piece which has been thoughtfully designed in remembrance of war and with a focus on the hope of a peaceful future.
