The City of Cosmopolis is inviting the public to join us on Memorial Day as we hold
a Dedication Ceremony for a series of memorial banners to honor military
For over 150 years, Memorial Day has served as a day to honor and mourn military
personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces.
The first national observance of Memorial Day occurred on May 30, 1868, but
honoring our veterans has always been a standing practice since the founding of
our nation.
In coordination with Aberdeen VFW Post & Auxiliary 224, the City will be holding
a ceremony outside of City Hall starting at 2:00 PM on Monday, May 29, 2023 to
unveil and dedicate these new banners. The city will be installing the banners on
light poles along First Street/US 101 ahead of the dedication.
City Administrator Darrin Raines stated, ““We are honored to be able to help
recognize the sacrifice and service of our fallen heroes that will be displayed on
these banners. This annual display of the memorial banners is an event that we
hope can grow into our neighboring communities.”
The event will feature speakers including Jim Daly, representing the VFW,
alongside local officials.
Any members of the public are invited to attend.
