The annual Memorial Day Ceremony, hosted by the American Legion, VFW and the Jewish War Veterans will take place at Pier Plaza on Monday, May 27th at 11:00 AM. The event features a 21-gun salute, flag-raising and playing of taps. Local dignitaries will be in attendance.
While the Memorial Day weekend usually marks the start of the summer season, it is important to remember the true meaning of the holiday. Memorial Day is a day of remembering all the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
