The Key Peninsula Veterans will host their annual Aisle of Honor ceremony the Sunday before Memorial Day at Vaughn Bay Cemetery at the corner of 100th Street KPN and 186th Avenue KPN.
Aisle of Honor by KP Veterans May 29
“It’s the largest honor aisle west of the Mississippi and will display 350 flags,” said Frank Grubaugh, past KP Veterans president. The ceremony begins at 1 p.m. though he encourages people to start arriving at 12:30. A roll call of veterans whose flags are flying in review will be recited during the ceremony and there will be a speech by retired U.S. Navy Capt. Larry Seaquist, a former state legislator and candidate for the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Visitors are encouraged to park at Vaughn Elementary and ride the shuttle provided by KP School Bus Connects to the cemetery. For more information, call 509-8656 or go to: kpveterans.net.
