Okotoks Recognizes Birth of a Nation Day

Saturday, April 9, 2016 – 6:00pm

Birth-of-a-Nation-web-bannerTo honour and recognize the Canadian Troops who fought at the battle of Vimy Ridge on April 9th, 1917, there will be a special marching procession. The march starts at the Elks Hall (62 Elizabeth Street), follows Elizabeth St. and turns North onto Centre Avenue, arriving at the Cenotaph. A brief remembrance ceremony will take place, followed by the placing of a memorial wreath and some prayers.

Following the march, join us for a special Sign Unveiling at the corner of Elma Street and the former Centre Avenue to officially rename Centre Avenue to Veterans Way. There will be an informal reception to conclude the festivities at the Elks Hall.

All Citizens are encouraged to attend and to proudly fly your Canadian Flag all day in remembrance.
