Ceremony will honor our departed veterans
On Monday, the 28th, Santa Clarita will have a chance to gather, remember and honor those who died to keep America free. In respects for the veterans, a flag ceremony will be held in the Veterans Memorial Park in Newhall at 8 AM.
Two years ago, the Knights of Columbus agreed with the City to replace the flags when they became worn out. It then became tradition to change the flags annually on Memorial Day. Every year, the Knights, dressed in full uniform, lower and replace the flags. All the flags will be lowered at 8 AM, and from 8 AM to 11:45 AM, the flags will be at half staff. Afterwards, the flags that need to be changed will be replaced; and then, all of them will be restored to full staff.
This Memorial Day, everyone is encouraged to attend the ceremony and pay respects to our heroes, who fought for our country and our freedom.
