Memorial Day ceremony at Sunset Memorial Park

Though the ceremony is canceled this year due to Covid-19 concerns, the park is still honoring the day by allowinig visitors to pick up an American flag grave marker to lay on the grave of a fallen soldier on Monday, May 25 between 10 am-12 pm.

Adjustments have been made to the annual Wiregrass Memorial Day Ceremony usually held at Sunset Memorial Park.

In what would mark its 14th year as a patriotic ceremony, this year’s event will be held without a formal ceremony Monday. Guest can visit Sunset Memorial Park and receive an American flag graveside marker from 10 a.m. to noon.

“Honestly, I am a little bit heartbroken we have to change it this year,” Sunset owner Robert Byrd said. “But, I understand why. Everyone’s safety is of the utmost importance. Many people look forward to this event every year as a way to honor their brave loved ones. I am glad we can at least offer a small memento of our appreciation to the soldiers’ families and friends.”
