Memorial Day ceremonies honoring fallen veterans are set for May 31 at Soap Lake Cemetery at 10 a.m., Ephrata Cemetery at 11 a.m., and Quincy Cemetery at 12:30 p.m.
Each ceremony will be a little different with flag raising and lowering, speakers, color guard, firing squad and playing of taps, but all are for the purpose of remembering those who have given their lives for this country. Organizers ask attendees to keep social distancing in mind.
In addition, the American Legion Family and Boy Scout Troop 41, along with some children and parents from Saint Rose of Lima, will be placing flags and white crosses at the graves of veterans buried in the Ephrata Cemetery. If a veteran does not have an American flag and white cross, please inform Jane Montaney at (509) 760-1433.
