Memorial Day Event

A Day to Remember Those that Served

The Mission: Thousands of people from Roswell and around the State joined the Rotary Club of Roswell and the City of Roswell to honor the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the defense of our country. The event is held on the green at City Hall.

The Remembrance: Pre-ceremony, patriotic-themed music kicked off at 10:15 a.m. with the official program getting underway at 11 a.m.The event featured the presentation of colors, singing of the National Anthem, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, an invocation, laying of the wreath, Lest We Forget POW-MIA tribute and a keynote speech.

The program concluded with a 21-gun salute and Taps. Close to five thousand men, women and children enjoyed the picnic and band on the grounds following the ceremony. Planning for this event starts almost a year in advance and involves over 150 Rotarians and many volunteers and City of Roswell employees the day of the event.This was the nineteenth year for this event.

Lunch Meeting: In addition, the meeting immediately prior to Memorial Day allows Roswell Rotary to honor these men and women with a special speaker, the honor guard and bag pipes.
