As we all know this is the long weekend we get one extra day to sleep in, spend the day lounging and maybe meet up with friends for some brunch and Monday night football. Sometimes it’s easy to forget and put in the back of our minds why we have this extra day of rest in November. It’s Remembrance Day, a day where we all take the time to sit quietly and pay our respects to the hundreds of thousands of soldiers who gave their lives to fight for what we now sometimes but not always intentionally tend to take for granted, a free country.
If you already have your plans made for tomorrow, whether you’re planning to spend the time with friends and family, going to one of Calgary’s many ceremonies or still unsure of where to commemorate Remembrance Day, I’ve listed a few events happening tomorrow!
Aerospace Museum will be having a service, which starts at 10:30am and is located at 4629 McCall Way N.E. The museum will be open after the service with admission by donation.
Battalion Park located at 3001 Signal Hill Dr. S.W. will centre on the monument at the bottom of the steps leading up to the battalion numbers after which the site is named. The ceremony will start at 10:30 and run until 12 noon on Monday, November 11, 2013.
