The Puyallup community will gather on Sunday, May 29th at 1 p.m. in the Pavilion at Pioneer Park to observe the 150th Anniversary of Memorial Day. The event will feature a program of music and remembrance of those who died while serving in the armed forces.
Highlighting the program will be musical selections by the Pierce College Chamber Choir and the Clan Gordon Pipe Band. Special guest speakers will be U.S. Congressman Denny Heck, 10th Congressional District, and 2nd District Pierce County Council Member Joyce McDonald.
This event is free and open to the public. Plenty of parking is available across the street behind City Hall.
Historians regard small-town Waterloo, New York, as the first official commemoration of those who died while serving in our country's military. Citizens in both the North and the South decorated graves during and after the Civil War, however; Waterloo held the first community ceremony in 1868.
Once known as Decoration Day, today’s Memorial Day was designated by Congress in 1967 to be held on the last Monday in May. This is a special time to recognize, honor and express our appreciation for those who fought and served so selflessly on our behalf.
