Memorial Day Remembrance Event

Sunday, May 26, 2019

Puyallup’s official city observance of Memorial Day will be in the Pioneer Park Pavilion on Sunday, May 26th at 1 p.m. The ceremonies honor our nation’s fallen and the 137 Puyallup citizens who have died in conflicts from World War I to today. State Senator Hans Zeiger, 25th Legislative District and Air Force Reserve officer, will speak along with U.S. Congressman Denny Heck (11th District). The Clan Gordon Pipe Band and Puyallup High School Wind Ensemble will play. The program includes reading the names of the fallen and placing wreaths, donated by local organizations, at the memorial statue in Pioneer Park. The program concludes with the stirring “Amazing Grace” played by the Clan Gordon Pipe Band followed by the rifle salute and “Taps”. The event is free, with indoor seating and is suitable for all ages.
