Memorial Day services around the Valley

The American Legion Renton-Pickering Post 79 will be hosting several activities over the Memorial Day weekend to commemorate veterans.

The post will be placing flags at veterans graves for the three cemeteries — Preston, Fall City and Mt Si Memorial — in the Snoqualmie Valley. Veterans and volunteers are meeting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 29, at Fall City Cemetery to start. Volunteers can sign up here.

Veterans of Post 79 and members of Auxiliary Unit 79 will also be collecting donations at the North Bend QFC on Saturday and Sunday. Buddy poppies will be available as well.

Finally, several Memorial Day services will be occurring on May 31. These include:

• Preston Cemetery at 9 a.m.

• Fall City Cemetery at 10 a.m.

• Veterans Memorial Park, Snoqualmie at 11 a.m.

• Mt. Si Cemetery at 12 p.m.

• North Bend Veterans Memorial at 1 p.m.

Each service will last roughly 20 minutes. Lunch and beverages will be offered after the 1 p.m. service in North Bend. All services are open to veterans, the public and their families.
