Pioneer Village to host annual POW/MIA memorial ceremony

Pioneer Village will open its doors to the public for the annual National POW/MIA day on Friday at 7 p.m. in front of the Harmon House.

The public is invited to witness the event, which will include a short drama skit of a prisoner of war and individual missing in action who find themselves at heaven’s gate. They tell their stories of how they happen to reach this part of their lives.

Also, information will be presented about four POWs who are laid to rest in the Rosehill Memorial Park. Each year a POW/MIA flag, along with an American flag, is posted at each of their graves so that those visiting the cemetery can see them from the distance.

Friday’s event is being hosted by the veterans’ breakfast group in connection with Wreaths Across America’s theme this year: “Be An American Worth Fighting For.” Those in attendance will be given an opportunity to give a free-will donation to Wreaths Across America or there will be more information on how one can give the gift of remembrance in sponsoring a wreath for a donation of $15 per wreath to ensure an American hero is honored.
