Groups will march back following each ceremony, so there may be traffic delays as late as 1:30 p.m. in some areas. There may also be processions not included here for events being held in other areas of the municipality…

IF I MISSED YOURS, PLEASE LEAVE THE DETAILS IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW!

Police will be escorting the parades and directing traffic in the surrounding areas, so heads up motorists! Those attending Remembrance Day ceremonies … give yourselves extra time to allow for parking.

And PLEASE everybody (whether or not you’re attending a service), take a moment  at 11 a.m. to remember those who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict, and peace.

I find it very frustrating to hear a car race by (with sub-woofer thumping) while others are observing one minute of silence. ..
