Memorial Day Remembrance at the 6th Annual Grays Harbor County Expo in Ocean Shores

The 6th Annual Grays Harbor County Expo in Ocean Shores over the Memorial Day weekend
hosts a Memorial Day Remembrance each year. This year VFW 3057 from Westport and the
Women’s Auxiliary, the South Beach American Legion Post, and the AMVETS Post 211 from
Westport team up for this service

The Memorial Wall that has been present the last few years
will once again be set up as well. This wall has pictures and other remembrances from family
and friends that have attended past services. People are once again invited to add their loved
one’s picture or a note to the wall. The service starts about mid-day Saturday, May 26th at the
Ocean Shores Convention Center.
The service starts off with poling the flag, then a reading from the Auxiliary of a history of the
American Flag. Inviting everyone to participate in singing the National Anthem follows this. To
end the ceremony Steve Markham from the AMVETS Post 211 will play Taps.
The show’s operators would like to invite any other uniformed Veteran organization to
participate in the Expo. A call to 253-318-3272 will start the process. A space in the parking lot
near the Memorial wall will be made available free of charge. More event information is
available at www.graysharborexpo.com.
Memorial Day was Decoration Day as many of us were growing up. The idea of remembering
our fallen started out with the Civil War veterans and then over the years has been extended to
include all of our fallen. Join us for this special remembrance service at the 6th Annual Grays
Harbor County Expo at the Ocean Shores Convention Center.
