City Invites all to Memorial Day Ceremonies to Honor Veterans
Event to be held 11 a.m. Friday, May 26 at the Veterans War Memorial
The City of Cumming invites citizens and community leaders to join local leaders at its Annual Memorial Day Ceremonies, which will be presented Friday, May 26 at 11 a.m. at the Veterans War Memorial, located at 301 Veterans Memorial Blvd. (next door to the Cumming Police Department).
The annual event honors local veterans for their service to our nation, and features the Avenue of Flags Dedication, which involves family members placing new American flags for display on the grounds. Each flag represents at least one veteran who passed away either during his or her service time, or after returning home. The Avenue of Flags display now features more than 230 flags, representing more than 275 deceased veterans.
During the dedication, family members unfurl and place a flag at the display for the first time. Avenue of Flags dedications began in 1995, three years after the City’s Veterans War Memorial was dedicated in 1992. The Memorial was created after the Persian Gulf War led to a desire in the community to honor all local service men and women. The project was funded by donations from businesses and individuals.
In addition to the Avenue of Flags dedication, Mayor H. Ford Gravitt will welcome guests and Georgia Army National Guard Lt. Col. Reed Barry will offer remarks in honor of all veterans. The Forsyth County Sheriff and Fire Honor Guard will present the rifle salute and the North Georgia Barbershop singers and Georgia Safety Pipe and Drum will present patriotic music, including bagpipe selections and Taps. A white dove release by Georgia Doves will conclude the program.
“All members of the community are welcome to join us for this important ceremony and remembrance of those who have served our nation,” said Mayor Gravitt.
Parking for the event will be available at the Cumming Fairgrounds, the Castleberry Road parking deck, and at the Cumming Police Department. Guests are asked to reserve the Police Department lot for veterans, the elderly and disabled.
