The annual Vimy Ridge church parade will take place on Sunday, April 18.
The parade, hosted by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 76 in Minnow Lake, memorializes the victorious battle of Vimy Ridge when Canada became a nation. Canadians played a key role in overtaking an integral stretch of land in France during the First World War. More than 3,000 Canadians were killed and more than 6,000 injured during the historic battle.
The parade will leave Tom Davies Square at 200 Brady St. at 1:45 pm, with the service commencing at 2 pm at the Church of the Epiphany on Larch Street.
The parade marshall will be armed forces veteran Gary Costello and the Colour Party will be under the control of Sergeant at Arms Fred Medynski.
The Air Cadets and Army Cadets will also parade and Roger Pile of Churchill Public School will be the bugler to play the Last Post and the Reveille
Medynski will read the name of one soldier from each province in Canada who was killed during the battle at Vimy Ridge.
The service will also have four legionnaires speaking on behalf of Canada before the war, preparation for battle, the battle itself and what the victory at Vimy Ridge meant for this country.
All members of the public are invited to watch the parade and attend the ceremony.
