This Memorial Day Remembrance hosted by Haven of Rest is free and open to the community. We celebrate and remember our fallen Veterans throughout the week by placing flags on the more than 2,200 veterans buried here in our cemetery. You are welcome to drive through the cemetery to see the inspiring display of flags. Join us on Monday, May 27th at noon for a program that will honor and remember all our fallen heroes as well as giving recognition and thanks to all veterans in attendance. We will enjoy patriotic music by members of The Narrows Music Society comprising a band of about 20 individuals. Our local South Kitsap High School will provide Jr ROTC members to present our flag while we sing the National Anthem. We will be attended by a local active duty company, volunteers helping with greeting and seating the commonly 300 to 400 community members in attendance and yes, chairs are provided. Our speaker will offer hope and encouragement for our country and the tradition of giving thanks to our military as we solemnly remember them . Mayor Kit Kuhn and other local dignitaries will be in attendance to meet and greet their fellow neighbors. And if that's not sure to stay for the free hot dog lunch where you can gather with local neighbors and meet the attending dignitaries. Don't miss out on this wonderful annual gathering.
