Community Calendar - Memorial Day weekend
Community Calendar – weekend of May 16th and 17th, 2009
The annual Memorial Day ceremony at the Oregon Vietnam Veterans Memorial starts at 10 a.m. on Monday May 25. The Memorial is located off of Highway 26 west of downtown Portland at the Zoo/Hoyt Arboretum/Vietnam Memorial exit.
The public is invited to help chalk and remember the deceased.
Veterans For Peace Chapter 72 will commemorate Memorial Day at the Memorial Coliseum’s “forgotten walls” followed by a walk to the Peace Memorial Park of Portland.
They invite the public to share in a quiet ceremony, including reflection on all victims of war, military and civilians alike.
The Peace Memorial Park is dedicated to the memory of all people everywhere who have ever perished in warfare, in the hope that like-minded people will join with its sponsors and creators in the effort to put an end to war so that humankind can live in peace.
