64th Annual Veterans Day Celebration

On Monday, November 11, 2013 at 11:00 am, Evergreen Washelli will be celebrating our 64th Annual Veterans Day. The event will take place at the Doughboy statue at the base of the Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Veterans, their families and the public will gather for a special band concert and Service of Remembrance.  A tent will be provided in the event of rain.

7:00 am — we will host a flag placement at the Lower Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Each of the white marble upright markers in the Lower Veterans Section will receive a flag. Volunteers are needed. During this time before the program, we invite you to wander the area and learn about our Medal of Honor recipients.

10:30 am — musical entertainment before the service.

11:00 am —  the Service of Remembrance begins. The program will conclude with “Taps” and a Rifle Salute.

The donation of flags for this event is greatly appreciated. If you would like to donate a flag or funds to purchase them, or for additional information, please contact Brenda Spicer or call our main Seattle office at 206.362.5200
