Every second weekend of every month from 11 am to 3 pm


The ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m. with a non-denominational service at the Maranatha Christian Reform Church at 11905 - 47 Street.  At 10:20 a.m. the parade leaves the church and marches down 118 Avenue to the Cenotaph where the service continues and wreaths are laid.

REMEMBRANCE DAY CEREMONY for School Children

This is usually held a day or two prior to Remembrance Day. The Beverly Cenotaph is the oldest memorial cenotaph in Alberta. The children learn about the sacrifices the soldiers of Beverly made during the wars. Children/schools are asked to participate by saying a prayer, reciting a poem and laying wreaths. Attendees are offered hot chocolate following the service. For information: Icprograms@gmail.com
