A ceremony honoring the service and sacrifice of America’s military members is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Memorial Day at White Rose Cemetery in Bartlesville.
Boy Scout Troop 6 will present the colors and Daughters of the American Revolution will offer the invocation to begin the service. The guest speaker will be Sen. Julie Daniels and Jason Elmore will serve as master of ceremonies. Treva Major of the Blue Star Mothers will present a wreath in honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
The rifle presentation will be led by Tom Windle of the Washington County Honor Guard. As in past years, American flags will be placed on each veteran’s grave by local scout troops.
A Memorial Day ceremony has been held at the city-owned White Rose Cemetery for more than a century.
The event is free, and the community is invited to attend. White Rose Cemetery is located at 11th Street and Virginia Avenue.
