Memorial Day Ceremony is an opportunity for Russell Haven of Rest to give back to the community. With the help of the Roy S. Geiger Detachment of the Marine Corps League, the Military Museum of Clay County, the Vietnam Vets and Legacy Vets Motorcycle Clubs and other volunteers, each Memorial Day is a very special day for all who attend. Besides patriotic speeches and music, there is a display of restored military vehicles and other military memorabilia. The ceremony is held under cover of former Vietnam era tents with spacious parking and seating. Each year we have a dynamic speaker to remind us that we live in the most wonderful country in the world, and we have the members of our Armed Forces to thank for that blessing.
Please join us on May 27, 2013 at 10 AM for a wonderful celebration and remembrance ceremony. The ceremony lasts for an hour, but plan to have extra time to linger and view the military displays. Chairs are provided, however it is a good idea to bring a chair just in case we run out. There are usually 250 - 300 guests. Come be a part, you will be blessed and glad you did!
Should weather be an issue, we will meet at the same time and date in the Russell Baptist Church.
