Trinity plans simple but colorful Memorial Day ceremony

May 18, 2013

As the country prepares to honor its fallen heroes, officials with Trinity Memorial Park are planning a patriotic display and ceremony which features more than 100 full-size U.S. flags and hundreds of smaller ones.
Set for 2 p.m. Monday, May 27, officials will hold a Memorial Day ceremony to honor the men and women who have given their lives in defense of America, according to Trinity Memorial Park Facility Manager Tammy Lockhart.
“This year's ceremony is going to be fairly simple, much like it was last year,” Lockhart said. “Our guest speaker will be Major Gen. Eddy Spurgin. We've also added a moment of silence for the family members who have passed during the year. We'll have a list of their names inside the program.”
Lockhart said the Howard County Volunteer Fire Department will again provide color guard services for this year's ceremony — which marks the 30th year Trinity Memorial has held the event — with a special touch.
“The volunteer fire department provided their color guard last year and did such a tremendous job,” Lockhart said. “This year, I understand they are also going to be bringing their bag pipes for the ceremony. Kem Hooper and Valerie Sullivan will be performing, so we're really looking forward to that.”
