Special Memorial Day ceremonies are planned for May 26 at Loma Vista Memorial Park in Fullerton. The City of Fullerton and the American Veterans Memorial Association will present the 76th Annual Fullerton Memorial Day Observance with special guest speaker COL Valery Keaveny, Jr, Commander of the 101st Airborne "Currahees" (East Company) made famous in the “Band of Brothers” mini-series.  

The program which begins at 10 a.m. and is free to the public is the oldest continuous Memorial Day ceremony in North Orange County. The event dates back to 1939 when C. Stanley Chapman, son of the city’s first mayor, began the tradition of placing a small white cross and an American flag at the grave of each veteran in Loma Vista. This year, community volunteers will place a cross and flag on more than 4,000 veterans’ graves throughout the cemetery. 

Loma Vista is located at 701 E. Bastanchury Road, east of Harbor Boulevard.  Further information about the program may be obtained by calling the American Legion at (714) 871-2412.

Persons requiring special accommodations to attend the ceremony are asked to notify the staff of Loma Vista Memorial Park at (714) 525-1575 prior to May 27.
