87th Annual Memorial Day Service at Evergreen Washelli















Seattle's own Evergreen Washelli is holding its 87th Annual Memorial Day Service.  Help us to honour our fallen heroes at this lovely, peaceful place.  The concert begins at 1:30pm and the ceremony will commence at 2:00pm.  Enjoy the outdoor service, and then, if you choose, take part in a guided tour of the Veterans Memorial Cemetery.  Six Medal of Honor recipients are buried here, and you can learn more about their lives and service to our country.  Enjoy music from the carillon tower, and perhaps stop to pay respects to relatives of some of our very own YR members.

The service and concert are free;  suggestion donation of $5 for the guided tour.

After the service, feel free to find a local eatery with the YRs or relax on your own time.

    Well! Sorry to miss you all. I badly misjudged the traffic on Rt 2 returning from Chelan. Catch up with you all another time.

      John, I'm sorry you got caught in traffic! I myself spent nearly 13 hours in the car going to and from Eastern WA - it was UGLY out there traffic-wise. I'm glad that you weren't trying to meet the group, though, since we ended up having a smaller attendance due to weather and other commitments (i.e, I had to travel to a memorial). Please join us another time! It might be easier to first find the group at our monthly assemblies or a Happy Hour. You're right - Evergreen Washelli is a big place. Hope to see you at an event soon! - Shannon, VP

    I'm new to the group. Where will everyone be at 1:30PM? I attended last year on my own and it's a big place. Thanks.

    I have to travel to eastern WA for my great-uncle's memorial service. Will miss being here for the traditional Memorial Day, but it also seems fitting to remember a great man.
