Memorial Day observance - Bend
Now that Bend has reopened on a Phase 1 basis from COVID-19 restrictions, Bend Heroes Foundation and its many partners will observe Memorial Day on Monday, May 25 with installation of 250 American and military service flags at Bend Heroes Memorial in Brooks Park, on Veterans Memorial Bridge on Newport Ave. and in downtown Bend. Previous flag displays for VE Day and Armed Forces Day were limited to the memorial and bridge by COVID-19. Boy Scout Troop 25 is leading the flag installations.
The names of Bend’s 112 fallen veterans (WWI to the present) are displayed on the granite Bend Veterans Peace Memorial.
Participants will assemble at Bend Heroes Memorial at 6:45 am with a brief ceremony at the memorial before flag installations. Upon completion of flag installations at about 7:50 am, group photos of all participants will be taken on the Court House steps on Bond St.
This event honoring our nation’s and Bend’s fallen veterans is free of charge and open to the public.
