Remembrance Day is a very important day for us, and even more so this year as we celebrate 100 years since the armistice which ended World War I. As such, there are lots of question you may have about what we're doing, where we're supposed to be, and when we're supposed to be there! Take a look below to find out all of the details for Remembrance Day this year. Please note that the Remembrance Day Parade is a mandatory activity for cadets, and should you not be able to attend it is extremely important that you contact the squadron to inform them of your absence.
Cadets are to meet at the Royal Canadian Legion (6 Tache Street) at 9:45 AM. If you are with the Cenotaph Guard, you are to meet CI Uden at the St. Albert Community Hall at 9:30 AM. Dress for all cadets is C-1 (Ceremonial Dress), but cadets are to reminded to also 1) wear their parkas and gloves, and 2) bring their touques.
The parade will be leaving from the Legion and proceed down Saint Anne Promenade, continuing down St. Anne St and stopping in front of the cenotaph next to City Hall. This is where the formal ceremonies will take place, and there is standing room all around the street for spectators to watch.
Upon completion of the ceremonies, the parade will begin to proceed back to towards the Legion. Cadets in the band and flag party will continue to the legion, while all other cadets will instead head directly to the St. Albert Community Hall. Once at the Community Hall, cadets will have the opportunity to have some hot chocolate and cookies, provided by Scouts Canada. We anticipate everything to be completed by approximately noon.
If you have any questions or would like further clarification, please contact the squadron via email at 533RCACS@gmail.com.
