      Patricia, yes it is indeed on Saturday, 10 November at 10:30am.

      As we also participate in the Festival of Remembrance, which is organized by the Royal British Legion on the Sunday closest to Remembrance Day. As Remembrance Day falls on a Sunday this year, it would have meant having to leave Petaluma and be down to Grace Cathedral in San Francisco by 2pm. Given the age fo some of our veterans, we felt that this rush was not in their best interests and scheduled our ceremony on the day before.
