A Celebration of Lives honoring veterans and civilians who have died during the COVID-19 pandemic will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 4, at the American Legion Post 10, at 1215 Pacific Blvd. SE.
During the pandemic, social distancing has forced some families to say farewell at hospitals, by phone or computer or not at all due to travel issues.
It is an American Legion tradition to “transfer” members from his world to the everlasting. This ceremony will be a way for the community to “transfer” its loved ones who have died during this time of seclusion.
Flags will be lowered to half-staff and each person’s name read aloud.
