The City of Pasco honored Memorial Day on May 27 with a public ceremony at City View Cemetary. The ceremony included a wreath presentation and flag-raising ceremonies conducted by the Honor Guard and the Tri-Cities Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol.

Sen. Matt Boehnke, R-Kennewick, was the keynote speaker at the event, which also included patriotic songs and performances by local artists Vickie Evans and Scott Sandifer. Evans and Sandifer sang “God Bless the USA” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”  

“On this Memorial Day, let us not only remember the fallen but also renew our commitment to the values they fought to protect. May their sacrifice guide us in our efforts to build a stronger, more just society,” Boehnke said.
