The City of Rohnert Park is proud to announce its collaboration with the American Legion to host a special Memorial Day event on Monday, May 27, 2024. The ceremony will take place at 10:00 a.m. at the Rohnert Park Community Center, located at 5401 Snyder Lane.

This Memorial Day event serves as a tribute to honor and remember the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

"The City of Rohnert Park is proud to partner with the American Legion to honor the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country," said City Manager Marcela Piedra. "This Memorial Day event is an important opportunity for our community to come together, remember, and express our gratitude."

The City of Rohnert Park and the American Legion have planned a heartfelt program that will include musical performances, guest speakers, and an outdoor display of the Avenue of the Flags. The Avenue of the Flags is a touching tribute, featuring flags that once draped the caskets of our honored veterans. The display offers a special opportunity for friends and family to visit and reflect upon the sacrifices of their loved ones, surrounded by flags that symbolize their service and dedication.
