Veterans Week

From November 5-11 — Veterans' Week — join us to honour those who have served Canada, past and present, in times of war, military conflict and peace. A Canadian veteran is any person who has served honourably, or is serving with the Canadian Armed Forces, the RCMP, the Merchant Navy, or Canadian Peace Officers who've served alongside our military on UN or NATO duty. 

Remembrance Day 

The Cochrane Royal Canadian Legion Branch 15, will conduct a Remembrance Day ceremony on the grounds of the Town of Cochrane Cenotaph. As our ancestors persevered through the challenges of the great World Wars, and the generations thereafter have and continue to battle conflicts both at home and abroad, amid the challenges of COVID-19 we stand steadfast in our pledge to always remember. Branch 15 will mark this 75th anniversary of the end of WW II, with a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, to acknowledge the sacrifices made by those that have served and continue to serve this nation. Family members representing the nine men who left this area to fight for our freedoms, never to return, men whose names now mark the WW II cenotaph, will be paid homage on this occasion.

The Remembrance Day Ceremony will commence at 10:40am, November 11, 2020 and will be live-streamed from the Cochrane Cenotaph, across the Cochrane Legion Branch 15 Facebook page. The Cenotaph grounds will be cordon off, with seating reserved for invited guest and Veterans ONLY (pre-registration required). Veterans may reserve a seat by emailing or leaving a voice message (between 9am and 2pm) for the Branch Service Officer at 403-932-2011. Reservations will be confirmed on November 9 and identification cross-checked at the cenotaph grounds. These measures are in place for the health and safety of all. Members of the general public who chose to attend the ceremony are requested to respect the cordon safety measures put in place at the cenotaph, and adhere to AHS COVID guidelines: wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
