After Ceremonies Entertainment – Bernie & Red – Musical Comedy Duo
Probably the most important day of the year for the Royal Canadian
Legion is November 11th . Remembrance Day, and our local branch #109

One of BC’s most popular and hard working entertainment acts will be
performing at the Legion for one day only, Saturday, November 11th.
Bernie & Red is a husband and wife comedy and music team.

perspective by Red, are spot on and very funny. This duo is not to be
