Eureka Cemetery was honored to provide a virtual Memorial Day program this year with Bateman Funeral Home. We hope you were able to visit us on Facebook to watch our flag being raised by Petty Officer 3rd Class Curtis Williamson of U.S. Coast Guard Station Yaquina Bay, and poetry read by World War II Petty Officer 2nd class Lee LeMasters.
The annual tradition of placing almost 900 flags on the graves of veterans buried at Eureka Cemetery is a huge undertaking that is taken on each year by Larry and Mary Silverthorn, Dave and Pam Cole and volunteers from the Church of the Nazarene.
We thank all the volunteers, families and staff who helped this year. Thank you for honoring our veterans.
