Following a recent refurbishment project, and with respect to all past serving members of the North-West Mounted Police, Royal North-West Mounted Police, and Royal Canadian Mounted Police who have been laid to rest in the RCMP cemetery in Dawson, a Cemetery Re-dedication event will take place on May 23rd, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.
The event will be followed by a photo opportunity in front of the S.S. Keno at 3:00 p.m., and a march down Front Street, leading to a Canada 150 community BBQ hosted by Dawson City RCMP. The BBQ will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m at Fort Herchmer (behind the Commissioner’s residence).
How to get there: The RCMP Cemetery is located on Cemetery Hill. Take Front Street heading south to the Dome Road and continue to Mary McLeod Road (just at the top of the first hill). Turn left and follow the road until you come to Cemetery Hill. RCMP cemetery is on the left hand side halfway down.
