The Chino Community Building will be the site of the America Legion Chino Post 299 annual Memorial Day event. This moving, hour-long remembrance is held in the Chino Liberty Courtyard in honor of members of the U.S. military who served our country. Families are invited to attend the service, which provides an opportunity to teach children that Memorial Day honors those who sacrificed their lives for our country while serving in the United States military. A history of the meaning of the Red Poppies will be provided. The observance will conclude with the moving 21 Gun Salute and playing of Taps.
David Meytoer will be the guest speaker, with comments provided by City of Chino Mayor Eunice Ulloa and State Senator Susan Rubio. Representatives from each of the branches of the Armed Forces will participate in a Placement of Wreaths ceremony commemorating U.S. service members that died in the wars spanning from World War I to the Afghanistan war.
The City of Chino will be posting on social media during the ceremony and a highlights video will be available on the City’s website after the event.
