Everyone is welcome to attend the service at the front lawn of City Hall. Veterans will lay wreaths at the Honour Rolls, the Watson Memorial and Royal Canadian Legion Branch 24 Cenotaph, and the Last Post will sound. The wreath laying begins at 10:15 a.m.

Veterans and Legion members will then begin their march through downtown streets to the cenotaph at Memorial Park for a memorial service commemorating the anniversary. The procession will leave City Hall at 10:30 a.m. and go west on Church Street, and continue south on Ontario Street and west on St. Paul Street West to the cenotaph.
