City's Memorial Day Ceremony set for May 30

April 22, 2016

The City of Cerritos invites the community to attend a Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 30 at 10 a.m. near the Cerritos Veterans Memorial in the Cerritos Civic Center. The event is held in honor of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice while defending our nation's freedom as members of the United States armed forces.

The Memorial Day Ceremony will begin with prelude music by the 40th Infantry Division Band stationed at the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base at 9:45 a.m. The ceremony will include a presentation of colors, comments by the City Council, laying of wreaths and a moment of silence. Light refreshments will be served following the ceremony.

At the event, the Friends of the 1st CEB will be collecting donations of granola bars, beef jerky, mints and individual-sized powdered drink mixes for care packages to be sent to marines deployed overseas. New, unopened packages of wet wipes in packs of 20 also will be collected.

For more information, contact the Community Participation Division at (562) 865-8101.
