The Matanzas Army JROTC will perform the Posting of Colors followed by remarks by Palm Coast Mayor David Alfin.

Heroes Memorial Park is a special place for Palm Coast because it recognizes those in the military and law enforcement who have given their lives in the line of duty. Branches of the military are honored with engraved granite monuments displaying names, along with a Purple Heart Memorial.
Following the City’s ceremony, residents can also attend Flagler County’s ceremony at 10 a.m. in front of the Government Services Building, 1769 E. Moody Boulevard in Bunnell.
All City of Palm Coast offices will be closed on Monday, May 30, for the Memorial Day holiday. Offices will re-open on Tuesday, May 31, at 8 a.m. Recycling and garbage collection will proceed according to the regular schedule.

Although can’t be physically present, as moved out of state, my heart will be, as did play a small part in getting a memorable
plaque placed under the Liberty Tree memorializing the sailors who lost their lives and’/or were wounded when Israel in an
unprovoked attack, attacked the USS LIBERTY off the coast of Egypt before the Seven Day War. And whose truth had been hidden
and denied, or obfuscated for so many years and is still not talked about openly and honestly. And may they be remembered
having paid the ultimate price, on this special day reminding us FREEDOM IS NOT FREE and DEMOCRACY NOT A SPECTATOR
