Palm Coast – Join the City of Palm Coast for a Memorial Day Ceremony, “Remembering America’s Heroes,” on Monday, May 31 from 8 - 9 a.m. at Heroes Memorial Park, 2860 Palm Coast Parkway. There is limited parking on site, however, parking is available along Corporate Drive and at the library.

The annual ceremony is open to all ages and honors the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Heroes Memorial Park is a special place for Palm Coast because it recognizes those in the military and law enforcement who have given their lives in the line of duty. Branches of the military are honored with engraved granite monuments displaying names, along with a Purple Heart Memorial.

The ceremony will begin with remarks from Palm Coast City Council Member Nick Klufas and include guest remarks from U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz. The Matanzas Army JROTC will perform the Posting of Colors. A Gold Star Family will participate in the laying of the wreath.
