May is just around the corner and the City of Rancho Cucamonga Community Services Department (CSD) is currently working with the local American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) posts to organize the City’s annual Memorial Day ceremony. While the response to this event has been positive over the years, the CSD Special Events division plans to revamp the 2019 version and make each element as meaningful and accurate as possible.

Event organizers started by reaching out to American Legion Post #835 and VFW Post #8680 to secure their participation and gather their input on the ceremony. Organizers then developed the program for the upcoming May event. This collaborative effort ensures that attendees will again enjoy a ceremony that honors all who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The City is extremely grateful to partner with both the American Legion and the VFW. Their willingness to apply their extensive knowledge and experience to the planning of this event is invaluable.
