Memorial Day Celebration

May 27, 2019

Every year the Gilbert Historical Society, along with American Legion Post 39, is proud to host Gilbert’s Memorial Day service on the museum’s front lawn, where monuments honor Gilbert residents who have served in our nation’s armed forces.

The service begins at 9 a.m. and includes a flag ceremony, the laying of wreaths and recognition of veterans in attendance, as well as musical entertainment and a variety of speakers. All Gilbert residents are encouraged to attend to honor those who have died in service. We encourage you to bring lawn chairs as seating is limited for this popular event.
