Memorial Day weekend ceremonies are planned for Camas-Washougal area

Memorial Day will be celebrated in several Ashland County communities on Monday, with the largest celebration planned in Ashland. Our community honors them and their many sacrifices this Memorial Day Weekend.

The ceremony begins at 11 a.m.at Fairview. The marchers will proceed along Third Avenue to Marine Ave. and then go up to Fourth Ave. and along Fourth Avenue to John Paul Jones Park on 101st Street, where a post-parade memorial service will take place. Late registration is $30 on the day of the race from 6:30 a.m.to 7:30 a.m.at the Recreation Center Parking lot next to the Recreation Center. We hand out the signs to parade-goers who line Eastern Norwalk streets from Van Zant to The Green in hopes that our veterans will see a field of "thank you" along the route. The American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars will be joined by city, county and state officials. The national anthem and "God Bless America" will be performed by former Ashland resident Stan Stine. Veterans and civic groups present wreaths followed by a benediction, Honor Guard gun salute and raising of the flag. Complimentary hot dogs, hamburgers and refreshments will be served and patriotic memorabilia will be available. He represented IL at the American Legion's 80th National Oratorical Contest in Indianapolis in April. Veterans, families, friends and the general public are invited to honor deceased veterans interred there.

Both ceremonies will involve presentations of military honors, speeches and tributes, and displays of flags. No political advertisements will be permitted in the parade.

Ralph Bozella, a member of the American Legion who also serves on the National Veteran Affairs and Rehabilitation Commission, will speak at the 11 a.m. ceremony, Daschofsky said. Participants will assemble on Dow Street at 9:30 a.m.

The event takes place every year since 2009.

Boy Scout Troop 562 will participate in a flag ceremony at 9 a.m., Monday, May 29, at the Camas Cemetery, 630 N.E. Oak St.

Tilton-Northfield - 9 a.m. A parade will march from the park to the village cemetery.

The 11 a.m. ceremony at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site will be at the bandstand on the north side of the Vancouver Barracks Parade Ground, opposite Officers Row.
