The people of Alloa will come together on Sunday 13th November to pay tribute to the courage and commitment of Scotland's servicemen and women.
The Remembrance Sunday parade, led by the Balaklava Pipes and Drums, will form up at Greenside Street car park before proceeding to the war memorial in Bedford Place. The ceremony will begin at 10.30am.
Clackmannan District Brass Band's bugler's will sound the Last Post before those gathered observe the two minutes' silence.
The ceremonial Act of Remembrance will be carried out by Lord Lieutenant Rt Hon Mr George Reid and Provost Derek Stewart. Wreaths will also be laid by representatives from the Scottish Parliament, the Royal British Legion, Central Scotland Police, Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service, alongside many others from various local uniformed and community organisations.
After the wreaths have been laid there will be a joint church service at St. Mungo's Parish Church with Rev. Sang Cha and Rev. Liz Clelland and all are welcome to attend.
Provost Derek Stewart said: "On Remembrance Sunday, I would ask all of Scotland to pause for a moment to reflect and pay tribute to our servicemen and women, past and present, who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our country."
