We have been invited by the RCMP Veterans' Association (Regina Division) and Depot Division to join them in the RCMP Memorial Services. For those interested in marching with the Veterans' Association, they gather at the Drill Hall at 7:45 AM to practice "getting back in step". The parade begins at 8:30 AM. Those wishing to attend, but not march, can advise of their attendance (and non-marching status) and chairs will be provided near the reviewing stand. Dress for the event is red/blue blazer, wedge cap, white gloves and full size medals and mourning ribbon, or a dark business suit. A Church Service will be held in the chapel following the parade. Those interested can join the VA Members and their spouses at the Division Mess for brunch.
