It is always a special time for Elks on Memorial Day as we remember our fallen brothers and sisters who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom. Over 400 people gathered to pay their respects at Alameda Veterans Memorial Park. USCG Chief and Alameda native Patrick Harris was the keynote speaker. We were joined by a contingent of US Marines, along with many other groups and dignitaries.
After the festivities, we celebrated together with lunch at Nick & Cece Pereira’s house. Enjoy the photos below and watch the video of us presenting our wreath in the ceremony. As Chief Harris said, “From now on, every day is Memorial Day”.
