Veterans, living and deceased, who had served in all wars will be honored on Saturday, May 24 at 10 a.m. at the Samuel Miceli Veterans Park on Kennedy Boulevard in Pittston. Members of American Legion Post 477 will conduct the services.
State Rep. Mike Carroll will give the principle address. All veterans and the public are invited to attend.
Families who had donated Cherry Blossom trees are urged to attend the ceremony. Last year, four trees were replaced through a grant by the Pittston Tomato Festival.
Joseph Savakinus, chaplain, American Legion Post 477, is chairing the program and can be reached by calling 883-2784.
