****************************************************************
Beaverton Post #124 and THPRD invites the community to the annual Memorial Day commemoration at Beaverton Veterans Memorial Park on Monday, May 31.
 
The event will be much smaller in scale than in previous years (no band, no speakers, no ceremonies), but no less impactful for our community. American Legion Beaverton Post #124 members will be on site from 10:30am until 12:30pm to serve as ambassadors, safely handing out small American flags & poppies along with hosting a POW/MIA display table.
 
At 12noon a flyer over by the West Coast Ravens and a single bugler playing Taps will commemorate the day.
 
Additionally, a photo remembrance display* honoring any service members who have passed from our community will be printed on A-frame banners and placed throughout the park site for self-guided walk throughs.
 
*Beaverton area residents can send in advance a photo of loved one by direct messaging photos to THPRD's Facebook or Instagram.
