Remembrance Day Service 2021

After a year of virtual services, Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 25 (representing the San Francisco Bay Area) was able to come together again at Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma for its annual Remembrance Day service, where we were assisted by members and leaders of our United States Navy Sea Cadet Corp – Arkansas Division. The program for today’s service is available by clicking here.

In addition to the in person service, we also tried to stream the service using Zoom. You can view an edited recording of that service at:

This was our first attempt at a hybrid service, and apologies to those at home. We learned that while the video through the cell phone on location turned 90 degrees, the feed in Zoom did not. Additionally, the audio quality – particularly for the music portions was problematic. We promise that by our next hybrid service that we will have these issues addressed.

Thank you to both those who attended in person and those who attended online. Thanks also to our fellow Canadians at the Consulate in San Francisco, the Digital Moose Lounge, and the Canadian Studies Program at UC Berkeley. We appreciate the incredible job each of these groups did in promoting the service.

Finally, below are some of the photos that were taken, including our traditional group picture.

    I am glad to have participated in the ceremony despite it being small. Without question it is an Honor ūüéĖ.
