Numbers at Remembrance Day services are growing

The number and diversity of people who gather on Nov. 11 continues to grow.

Editor: As one of the volunteers involved in the planning and presentation of Fort Langley’s annual Remembrance Day service, I continue to marvel at the number and diversity of people who gather around Langley’s cenotaphs every Nov. 11.

People continue to come in ever-increasing numbers, and although the ranks of the veterans may be thinning, the number of young people attending and participating in these services is growing.  This gives us hope that the sacrifices of an older generation of Canadian servicemen and women will not be forgotten.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to thank The Times for its coverage of this season of remembrance.  I would also like to extend our gratitude to all those who helped to make our service successful once again.
