The American Legion Post 123, Magnolia is sponsoring two Memorial Day services in Magnolia on Monday. Many Blaine students have volunteered and will participate in the services:
- 10am in front of the Post Office in the heart of Magnolia
- 11am at Fort Lawton Cemetery in Discovery Park
Here is a rundown of the morning’s events:
The Blaine Glee Club/Girl Scouts/Campfire will sing the National Anthem at 10am, and the Boy/Cub Scouts will present the Colors at 10am & 11am. Makenna Ertell will sing the National Anthem at 11am, and Schuyler Lubin will play Taps at 11am. Many students will help put flags in the village and make cards for veterans before the services.
Enter Discovery Park through the east entrance off West Government Way. The cemetery is located about 300 yards west of the park entrance. You are welcomed to park at the cemetery, and parking is also available at the Visitors Center (on the left side of the road approximately 150 yards in the park). There is a short walk up the hill to the cemetery for those that park at the Visitors Center.
In the event of adverse weather the 11am service at Fort Lawton will start immediately following the 10am service in the village.
Come dressed in your scout, sports uniform or any patriotic outfit!
