Woodlawn Cemetery To Observe Memorial Day With Flyover, Unveiling Of Wall Concept:

 

Santa Monica’s historic Woodlawn Cemetery, Mortuary & Mausoleum, located at 1847 14th Street, will host the City’s 75th annual observance of Memorial Day on Monday, May 27th, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.

Presented by a consortium of local charitable and service oriented organizations, this year’s event features the unveiling of conceptual plans for a Commemorative Wall honoring Santa Monica veterans.

Additional event highlights include a condor squadron military flyover, musical performances by the Santa Monica Oceanaires, food, and cemetery tours.

This year’s keynote speaker is retired Santa Monica Fire Chief Ettore Berardinelli, who served thirty-one years in the Santa Monica Fire Department working his way through the ranks to the top spot of Fire Chief in 1997. He joined the United States Army in 1969 in the unit designated 200th/201st Special Operations Detachment, Army Security Agency. He received “top secret” security clearance and held the rank of Staff Sergeant when he was honorably discharged in 1975. He states that the “high point of his career was becoming a Paratrooper”.

Parking for this event will be available directly across the street from the cemetery in the Santa Monica College parking structure located at 1900 Pico Boulevard (16th Street and Pico Boulevard). Shuttle service between the parking structure and the cemetery will be available.

The event and parking are free.
