Bainbridge Island Memorial Day Services will take place at two locations on Monday, May 27.
The general public is invited to attend the memorial ceremony at Bainbridge High, the purpose of which is to “honor those who have sacrificed and remember the cause for which they fought and to affirm our trust in the future.”
Starting at 10:45 a.m., Legionnaires, Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion members, local veterans, and the Public, will meet at the Veterans Memorial located at Bainbridge High School.
A very brief service will be conducted and individual members will decorate the area surrounding the monument with flowers and flags. The public is also invited to bring flowers.
Immediately following this event, all Legionnaires, Auxiliary and SAL members and invited guests are welcome to proceed to the post hall at 7880 NE Bucklin Hill Road for the main program, which will start at 11:20 a.m. The ceremony will feature guest speaker Gunnery Sgt. Marcuss Hernandez from the U.S. Marine Corps Security Force Battalion, Submarine Base Bangor.
Additionally, the post extends an extra-special invitation to all Iraq and Afghanistan veterans on or from Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap, and all returning USS Stennis sailors and Marines and their families, to attend today’s events.
