Dedication kicks off Legion Week in Mission

The Saturday ceremony starts at 11 a.m. at the Hatzic cemetery

As a launch to Legion Week, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 57 is holding a dedication of the Hatzic Cemetery Memorial June 22 at 11 a.m.

This project will honour those veterans who have served the country, and has been completed thanks to a grant from the Cenotaph/Monument Restoration Program and Community War Memorial Program through the Commemoration Division Veterans Affairs Canada.

The District of Mission has helped by volunteering to maintain the Legion section of the cemetery.

The project included the installation of a memorial cairn, Legion section markers and  erection of a new flag pole which will help identify the Legion section of the cemetery.

Everyone is welcome to attend the dedication. The cemetery is located at 34867 Cemetery Rd. in Hatzic.

Following the ceremony, refreshments will be served at the Legion branch at 32627 Logan Ave.
