News Release – Mayor’s Remembrance Day Message

Mayor’s Remembrance Day Message

On November 11, we will gather to remember and pay our respects to the brave men and women of the armed forces who gave their lives in the line of duty.

Although we are not able to gather in person this year, I encourage all citizens to join us virtually as Oliver pays homage to those who died at its Cenotaph Memorial and the banners that hang on Main Street.

The ceremony will be live-streamed on the Legion’s website www.oliverlegion97.ca starting at 10:30 am. In addition, the Oliver and District Heritage Society has setup a virtual “Tree of Remembrance” on its website where people can attach their memories to a poppy.

We will remember and honour these brave men and women for their courage by wearing poppies as a symbol that we will not forget the sacrifices made for our freedom. 

On behalf of Town of Oliver Mayor and Council, today we remember why we must work for peace every day of the year.

Lest we forget.

Martin Johansen

Mayor, Town of Oliver
