VIDEO: Hundreds gather at Cloverdale Cenotaph for Surrey Remembers ceremony

Veteran’s square fills with community members for annual Remembrance Day service

Hundreds gathered in Veteran’s Square in Cloverdale this morning for the “Surrey Remembers” service.

The event, organized by the Cloverdale Legion, draws a crowd of visitors every year.

There was a service, which included music and prayer, and two minutes of silence at 11 a.m., after which wreaths were laid at the foot of the Cloverdale Cenotaph.

Cloudy skies hung above the ceremony, and rain broke just as the colour guard began to lead the RCMP officers, emergency services personnel and cadets out of the square, following the close of the services.
