Memorial Day event planned for Monday

Pike County American Legion Post 197 will host the Pike County Memorial Day Observance Program starting at 10 a.m. Monday, May 29 on the south side of the courthouse square in Zebulon.

“The program theme for this year is “Our Flag – A Sacred Memorial”. A Sheriff’s office escorted hearse with a flag draped casket will be used to reinforce the theme as well as full final military honors with three round volley, Taps, the flag folding and presentation to Mayor Joe Walter of the city of Zebulon,” said Post 197 event director Bryan Richardson.

“A secondary program theme is ‘Our Youngest Generation.’ The program in its entirety will be informative, patriotic, inspirational and moving. We encourage all veterans to attend as they will be acknowledged as part of the program.”

Seating is limited and citizens are encouraged to bring a chair. In case of inclement weather, the program will be held at the Zebulon Christ Chapel outdoor pavilion.

“Help us acknowledge our veterans and those military who died establishing and defending the freedoms we enjoy today,” said Richardson.
