VFW Memorial Day Service At Veterans Park



By James M. Lang, Commander,
Marco Island VFW Post #6370

A Memorial Day Ceremony will be held at Veterans Community Park on Bald Eagle Drive on Monday, the 27th of May at 11:00 am. All are invited to attend and honor veterans for their service to our country.

There will be members of the Marco Island fire and police departments, the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the Civil Air Patrol, the Boy Scouts and the VFW Post. Music will be provided by the Marco Island Strummers, including patriotic songs and a double-bugle taps. The Civil Air Patrol will be doing a fly over.

Memorial Day is one of the two annual events honoring veterans, and on each of these days the Marco VFW Post sets flags along Collier Boulevard and on veteran’s gravesites at the Island Cemetery. Over a thousand flags are set along Collier Blvd. and the grave sites to remind people of the importance of this day.

We ask that residents and guests to join us in our ceremonial service. We must remember our gift of freedom and be proud of our flag, the symbol of our country.

You may bring folding chairs for this one hour event if you wish.
