There will be pre-ceremony bagpipes, a color guard with drum cadence, an assortment of music from the Meridian Community Band, Pledge of Allegiance, “The Meaning of Memorial Day” by Meridian Township Clerk Brett Dreyfus, a selection of hymns from the various branches of our military, benediction by a local religious leader and a keynote speaker.

“This is the 24th year that Meridian Township will carry on the tradition of honoring and paying respect to the dedicated brave men and women who selflessly protected our nation by serving in our military,” said Brett Dreyfus, Meridian Township Clerk. “It is important for our community to honor those individuals who made enormous sacrifices – sometimes giving their lives in the defense of our nation and our democracy. Others suffered permanent injuries and carry the scars of their commitment to protecting our cherished freedoms. This Memorial Day Service is a time to reflect on these sacrifices and recognize those who had stepped up to serve our nation.”
