Less than 50 people attended this year’s Remembrance Day ceremony in Cloverdale, but more than 11,000 viewed the event online.

Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the in-person attendance number was capped at 50.

The livestremaed video, shown on Heritage Surrey’s Facebook page, elicited more than 250 comments.

During the ceremony, World War II veteran and POW Hans Andersen placed a wreath at the Cloverdale Cenotaph. The 99-year-old placed a wreath for POWs.

Cloverdale-Langley City MP Tamara Jansen, outgoing Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Marvin Hunt, and Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum also placed wreaths.
