SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The city of San Clemente will hold a virtual Memorial Day celebration on Monday, May 25, when community dignitaries will commemorate fallen soldiers of war and honor those who fought for the nation.
Acting Mayor Laura Ferguson will deliver the welcoming address, with San Clemente Police Chief Lt. Edward Manhart leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Jim Davis is scheduled to provide the invocation and benediction during the ceremony, which will also feature music from Christopher Anderson, a professional operatic tenor, according to the city.
The Memorial Day Observance video will be posted on the city’s YouTube channel at 10 a.m. on Monday. This year’s event will also be included in the city’s virtual recreation programming and can be view through the city’s website at san-clemente.org/scvirtualrec.
