The Royal Canadian Legion US Branch #25 representing the San Francisco Bay area generally organizes two formal Remembrance services each year.
Each Remembrance Day is observed at Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma, CA. The ceremonies begin around 10:45am and last approximately 30-40 minutes. There is a break for lunch (which is on one’s own), and then at 1:00pm there is a small parade from the Walnut Park in downtown Petaluma that is organized by the municipality that the Legionnaires and our U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) Arkansas Division partners participate in.
The Saturday prior to Memorial Day is observed at Greenlawn Cemetery in Colma, CA. The ceremonies begin around 11:00am and last approximately one hour. Generally speaking, the Legion hosts our U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) Arkansas Division partners and their friends and family for a small reception immediately following.
Finally, while not organized by the branch, the Royal Canadian Legion US Branch #25 also regularly participates in the ANZAC Day at the Log Cabin in the Presidio, and other remembrance activities.
