On Monday, May 27, at 11 a.m., the Great Falls Freedom Memorial Committee will hold its annual Memorial Day Ceremony at the site of the Freedom Memorial (behind the Great Falls Library at 9830 Georgetown Pike). The event will include patriotic songs, remarks by retired Marine Corps Lieutenant General Norman H. Smith, and a reading of the names and bell-ringing for each of the 25 residents of Great Falls who have fallen in service to our nation. The proceedings will conclude with a wreath laying by local dignitaries and raising of the flags by Boy Scout Troop 55.
This ceremony is open to all and ample parking is available in the library parking lot. In case of rain, the ceremony will move into the library’s meeting room.
