SPECIAL REMEMBRANCE SERVICE
Each year our Malahat Branch specially honours those Canadian Service Men & Women who have lost their lives while serving on Canadaian soil. Each year on the Saturday prior to October 22nd we hold a Special Service at the Cobble Hill Cenotaph at 11 am. After the service the participants are invited back to our Legion. The date was selected to signify our respect to those who gurard Canada, readily serving on a daily basis in the Armed Forces. They have given their lives , not in war or during a peacekeeping deployment, but in the inherently dangerous every day duty of keeping our nation safe and strong. For this service "We will Remember them"
