Members of the United States Armed Forces who have given their all in service to their country will be honored at three Memorial Day ceremonies, to be presented May 27 by local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3783.
The first service will be at 10 a.m. at Nuevo Memory Gardens, 532 Ash St., where veterans’ graves will be marked with individual American flags. Other ceremonies will follow at the World War II Memorial at the ball field on Ninth Street, and at the Vietnam War Memorial at Schwaesdall Winery, 17677 Rancho de Oro Dr., off Highway 67.
Services and events are open to all, according to Post Commander Alexis Henshaw, who says, “The VFW always encourages anyone from the Ramona community to come to any of our ceremonies
honoring our veterans.”
After the services, a picnic at the Post, 2247 Kelly Ave., will conclude the day of remembrance.
