Each year at 11:00am on November 11 we pause to think about the brave men and women who gave so much for our country, our freedom, and our way of life. Several Remembrance Day ceremonies are being held throughout the community and Township of Langley Council encourages residents to attend, reflect, and give thanks to those who served and sacrificed.
