Memorial Day in PDX: in memory of all victims of war

Re-posting from an email for Memorial Day 2013 at 12 noon at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
Date: Thursday, May 23, 2013, 7:39 PM

Please join Veterans for Peace Chapter 72 as we observe Memorial Day.

We will gather at "Veterans Memorial Coliseum" (near entrance in lower level) at noon for a brief observance, and then walk together, with our flags, to the Peace Memorial Park, in memory of all victims of war.

Park in the "Annex Lot" (see attached Rose Quarter map).

Be sure to tell the parking attendant you are here for the Veterans Memorial Day Observance and you will be allowed complimentary parking.

Thank you for forwarding this message widely,
The members of VFP Chapter 72
