Vancouver’s only cemetery is hosting this morning matinee to kick-off “Lights, Camera, Action” for 2018 based (very loosely or not at all) on these blockbusters:
The Heat of Water: See for yourself the power of steam with a live demonstration of how effective super-heated water under low pressure can be in removing decades of grime from monuments.
Sandblasting the Stone. Come see how adding a sandblast booth has enabled Mountain View Cemetery to provide engraved niche fronts for at-need families, expand our service offerings and expand revenue.
Saving Private Ryan’s Marker. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission will present a brief history on their organization, its fundamental principles and its mandate and worldwide responsibilities. You will find out about the responsibilities of the Commission's Canadian Agency within the Americas with an emphasis on its ongoing work in BC. It will also explain the importance of commemoration and the discovery of remains.
