Remembrance Day 2017

Each year the Royal Canadian Legion US Zone, Branch #25 representing the San Francisco Bay area, observes Remembrance Day at Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma, CA. The 2017 ceremony began around 10:30am and lasted approximately 30 minutes.  As always, our U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) Arkansas Division partners participated (and we thank them for their continued support).

This year, we were also fortunate enough to have Rana Sarkar, Consul General of Canada in San Francisco, attend to represent the Government of Canada.

Below are some pictures from the event.
