Memorial Day May 25 Celebration in Beaverton Cancelled

For many years the Lewis & Clark Chapter has been honored to participate in this event. Our Color Guard has fired musket volleys at the end of the Memorial Day Celebration in Beaverton to commemorate the men and women who have died in military service to their country. We have also had our SAR booth there and over the years not only raised awareness for our Society and chapter, but it has become our best fundraising event for the Oregon Revolutionary War Memorial.

This year because of the CORVID-19 pandemic, the American Legion has cancelled the event. We will miss being with our friends, but please everyone take a moment on Memorial Day and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Remember: Raise the flag on May 25 with Honor and Respect.
