ORANGE...Memorial Day is a very special day for the Orange Elks Lodge. It is a time we come to honor those men and women who have fought for us and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

WWII, the 80th Anniversary of D-Day was the theme for this year’s ceremony.

The Annual Tri-City Memorial Day Observance was held at the Santa Ana Cemetery.
The master of ceremony was Scott McKee.

The pledge of Allegiance was led by Girl Scout Troop 2103 and the Santa Ana High School sang the National Anthem and several patriotic songs.

The Salute to our Armed Forces played the song recognizing all the service branches.
There were Cannon Salutes to our Fallen, our POW’s and MIA by the Cooper’s Battery.

World War II, Korean and Vietnam Veteran Billie Hall addressed the crowd.

The Orange Elks lodge presented a floral arrangement.
