Fullerton: American Legion cancels service

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 by The Press in Columns

Sadly, the Memorial Day service scheduled for May 25 at American Legion Post 367, Fullerton, has been canceled due to COVID-19.

However, a virtual memorial ceremony, veterans writing workshop and the Our Hometown Heroes display honoring men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces highlight the 10th year of ArtsQuest’s Memorial Day celebration presented May 24 and 25 by Embassy Bank.

There will be more than 130 banners featuring photos of 1,300 Lehigh Valley residents who served in the military and will be displayed on First and Second streets and Founders Way on the SteelStacks campus in Bethlehem. The community is encouraged to drive through the campus or walk by the banners, following proper social distancing guidelines and any other health and safety regulations enacted by the city and the state.

A “Time to Remember” memorial ceremony will take place 3 p.m. May 25 on the Bethlehem SteelStacks Facebook page.

The event will include the singing of the national anthem and “God Bless America” by Stacy Gabel, as well as a reading of the names of the Lehigh Valley residents who lost their lives in service to our nation by the Lehigh Valley Gold Star Mothers.
