Decoration Day – June 3, 2018
Start Time 1:30PM
We honour the Veterans who have returned from various conflicts and lived out their lives in Transcona. The Family and Friends of the Veterans place a cross with a poppy on each grave. There are some Veterans who have no family, we are inviting the community to come down for this ceremony and place the cross on their graves. Our Branch provides the crosses and it is a beautiful sight to see all the graves with the cross.
Please be advised that our parking lot will be closed to the general public as we will have our working vehicles and float stationed within it
The Day will begin with a Service at the
Field of Honour in the Transcona Cemetery (Dugald Road)
The pledge of the Royal Canadian Legion:
“WE WILL REMEMBER THEM”
