Memorial Day Ceremony

Come and join us for this special event! Edmonds Community College in partnership with the VFW, the Triton Student Veterans’ Association, and other organizations on campus and in our community is hosting a Memorial Day Ceremony and Wreath Laying to honor America’s fallen service members, and to strengthen relations between Veterans, the college and the local community.  The ceremony will include a ceremonial lowering of the campus flags to half-mast, a presentation in the Mukilteo Hall Black Box Theater, musical performances and a procession to the Boots to Books and Beyond Memorial for a Wreath-Laying Ceremony.

I will be there and afterwards at the reception handing out drinks to all. Please come join us and help make this celebration special!
