Memorial Day starts in Rothsville
VFW Post 1463 and the Lititz American Legion have amassed a group of local pastors and musical talent that will be responsible for carrying out local Memorial Day observances on May 28.
The day begins in Rothsville, where a parade will form at 8:45 a.m. at Salem United Methodist Church on Old Rothsville Road.
The parade proceeds to Jerusalem Lutheran Church cemetery where a 9:15 a.m. service will be held. Children will place flowers on the graves of veterans, marked by American flags.
An invocation by Pastor David Unangst of Salem UMC will follow, along with a musical rendition of "America," and a reading of the Gettysburg Address.
Senator Mike Brubaker will be the guest speaker. Brubaker is currently serving his second four-year term representing Lancaster and Chester County residents in the PA Senate.
VFW Post 1463, American Legion Post 56 and the Rothsville Fire Company will lay wreaths in honor of those who served, following which William Stauffer will lead those in attendance in the singing of our National Anthem.
"Taps" will be played to salute the dead and Pastor Unangst will give the benediction to conclude the service in Rothsville.
The Lititz observance follows a similar schedule. A parade will form on Warwick St. at 10:30 a.m. and will proceed at 10:45 to the Moravian cemetery.
Children will place flowers on the graves of veterans as the Lititz Community band plays the Navy Hymn.
Rev. Victor Shifler will offer the invocation and William Stauffer will sing "America." A reading of the Gettysburg Address will follow.
Senator Brubaker will again address the gathering as guest speaker, followed by a series of patriotic offerings from the Lititz Community Band.
Wreaths will be laid by VFW Post 1463, American Legion Post 56 and VFW and American Legion Auxiliaries and Sons of the American Legion, after which William Stauffer will lead attendees in the singing of our National Anthem.
A firing squad, followed by "Taps" and echo will honor the fallen, after which Rev. Shifler will pronounce the benediction. More MEMORIAL DAY, page A14
