Remembering Pearl Harbor

President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared December 7th, 1941 “a day that will live in infamy.” In less than two hours, over 2,400 U.S. service men and women lost their lives and another 1,200 were wounded in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Join Elk Grove Detachment 1238 of the Marine Corps League, the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and American Legion Post 233 in remembrance of those who gave their all with a flag raising and wreath laying ceremony in Veterans Grove this Saturday, December 7 at 7:55 a.m. Veterans Grove is located at the east end of District56 at 8230 Civic Center Drive.

This is a free event open to the public and all ages.
