Soldiers remembered with service at UBCO, Wednesday

UBCO hosts its 11th Remembrance ceremony, Nov. 9 at the Kelowna campus courtyard.

Remembrance Ceremony at UBC Okanagan

This Wednesday, Nov. 9, students, faculty and staff at UBC Okanagan take a moment to remember Canada’s fallen soldiers at a Remembrance Day service. This year the colour party from Kelowna’s Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 26, will be on hand to mark the event.

The university invites neighbouring schools, local residents and the entire campus community to honour Canada’s soldiers at the service. The ceremony is a combination of traditions from UBC and members of the local Canadian Legion.

An UBCO employee who is a veteran, will speak briefly about the importance of Remembrance Day, along with other administrators and students. Along with the reading of In Flanders Fields and the singing of O Canada, there will be the traditional two minutes of silence, a bugle reveille and bagpipe lament.

After the formal service, all are welcome to a reception in the Arts Building foyer. The reception provides a chance for the university community to mingle with the veterans and Legion members.

The service will be held in the UBC Okanagan campus courtyard, starting at 10:45 a.m.

Pay parking is available on campus.
