Memorial Day Ceremony 2024 recap

On Monday, May 27, at 11:00 a.m., the annual Memorial Day ceremony was held at the Great Falls Freedom Memorial to honor the residents of Great Falls and all others who have given “the last full measure of devotion” to their country.  The event featured an invocation by lay minister Bob Newhall, a Boy Scout color guard and the Pledge of Allegiance led by Boy and Girl Scout Troops. Patriotic songs were led by sisters Lucia and Allithia Aguilar, who are students at Langley High School and Cooper Middle School.  “Amazing Grace” was performed on the bagpipes by Great Falls student MacPhearson Strassberg.  Andy Wilson, President of the Great Falls Freedom Memorial Board and an Army Ranger veteran, delivered the keynote speech. “Taps” was bugled by student Steve Kramp.  Memorial Day poppies were distributed and a wreath-laying for natives of Great Falls killed in battle was conducted.  The Freedom Bell donated by David Lucien was rung as names were read.
