Watch Live: Remembrance Day Ceremony


RIVERVIEW (N.B.) – The Town of Riverview and the Riverview Veterans and Armed Forces Association will hold a small and safe Remembrance Day Ceremony next week.

The global pandemic has directly affected the execution of this year’s event, however, a much smaller yet heartfelt ceremony will take place without placing vulnerable members and the general public at risk. 

The November 11 ceremony will be held at the Town Hall monument for invited members and guests only.

“Our Association and Town believe it is paramount that we hold a ceremony to honour our Veterans and their sacrifices, especially with this being the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War,” said Retired Colonel Bill Hanson.

For the first time, spectators will be discouraged from attending in person due to the limited space and requirements set out in the Provincial COVID-19 guidelines.

Instead, the ceremony will be recorded and livestreamed on Riverview Fire and Rescue’s YouTube channel from 10:45 a.m. Click here to view it.

Those wishing to make a donation for a memorial cross can still do so. Please contact Karen Thompson at 506-387-2037.

Prior to the ceremony, wreaths and crosses will be in place. Those who have made a donation for a wreath or cross will have their names announced, in memory of their families or organizations as in the past.
