Bright blue skies welcomed the many who attended the 37th annual Memorial Day ceremony at the Edmonds Memorial Cemetery and Columbarium.

Cemetery Board member Jerry Janacek was master of ceremonies. This year’s theme was “Remembering POW/MIAS.”

Among the program highlights were the presentation of colors, songs and music by the Kinetic Community Singers, the Edmonds-Woodway High School Brass Quintet, and piper Mike Barber.

The program continued with the White Table Ceremony, an essay by Olivia Olson, and remarks from Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling.

The program ended with a rifle salute by the Washington National Honor Guard, Camp Murray, and taps by 1st Sgt. Chris Edwards.
