The Royal Canadian Legion in the Western Zone of the USA

San Francisco Remembrance Day

Please note that in November the Royal Canadian Legion US Zone, Branch #25, representing the San Francisco Bay Area, will be organizing formal Remembrance Day ceremonies as they do each year that are open to the public.

Each Remembrance Day is observed at Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma, CA.

10:30am – Ceremonies begin

11:30am – Break for lunch (which is on one’s own)

1:00pm – Small parade from the park in downtown Petaluma, organized by the municipality (information about the parade can be found at http://www.petalumaveteransparade.com/), the Legionnaires will march in this parade.

Additionally, please note that Royal Canadian Legion US Zone, Branch #25, representing the San Francisco Bay Area, will also be participating in an annual ceremony – the Festival of Remembrance – organized by the Royal British Legion at Grace Cathedral.

This cherished annual ceremony commemorates all who have lost their lives in armed conflict and commemorates the day known as Remembrance Day or Armistice Day. The service includes the deeply moving cascade of thousands of poppy petals onto the altar as Amazing Grace is played on the bagpipes.

The San Francisco Bay Area branch of the Royal Canadian Legion also participates each year, and will do so again this year. This year’s ceremony will be held on Sunday, 12 November at 3:00pm.
