Remembrance For Generations

Massey Theatre in New Westminster, site of the yearly Remembrance Day ceremony

 

Each year, New Westminster notably hosts various events recognizing Remembrance Day .

Frances Monteleone , New West Secondary drama teacher , is conscious that her annual stage production has impact on the community- young and older.

“Many of the students have had relatives who fought in previous battles…but they don’t experience firsthand what it’s like. One of the greatest compliments we receive from guest speakers and the veterans who attend {is} that we’re acknowledging it… but also that we’re allowing an opportunity for the students to be connected.”

Veterans and members of the Royal Westminster Regiment attend the event yearly.
