[Reminder] Royal Canadian Legion – US Branch #25 Commemoration Day Virtual Service

You are invited to attend the Commemoration Day Sunrise Service that is being organized by the Royal Canadian Legion – US Branch #25, representing the San Francisco Bay Area, in partnership with the Digital Moose Lounge and Canadians in Orange County.

Commemoration Day 2020

While July 1st is a day of celebration in most of Canada, for the province of Newfoundland and Labrador it is also a day for sombre remembrance. In Newfoundland and Labrador the first of July is also Commemoration Day (also known as Memorial Day), when we remember the tragically destructive events of July 1st, 1916.

The first of July 1916 was the opening day of the Battle of the Somme, when 806 members of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment climbed out of their trenches and went “over the top” at 8:45am as part of the battle of Beaumont-Hamel. In less than an hour, the regiment was devastated, most killed or wounded within the first 20 minutes of the battle. The next morning, only 68 soldiers answered roll call. Commemoration Day was established in 1917, just one year later.

After Confederation with Canada, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador continued the tradition of Commemoration Day during the morning of July 1st, and reserved the remainder of the day to celebrate Canada Day. To honour this tradition, US Branch #25 of the Royal Canadian Legion, representing the San Francisco Bay Area, will be hosting their own Commemoration Day service.

The service will be broadcast via Zoom at two times – 6am and 10am – on Wednesday, 01 July 2020 and will last approximately 45 minutes.

Advanced registration is required.
