SCV Memorial Day Ceremony
May 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am
The Santa Clarita Valley Veterans Memorial Committee is hosting a Memorial Day ceremony to honor veterans, with a focus on local Purple Heart recipients. The ceremony is an annual tradition at the Newhall cemetery, with Santa Clarita Mayor Jason Gibbs acting as emcee this year. Rep. Mike Garcia, R-Santa Clarita, a Navy veteran, is also expected to be on hand for the ceremony, which will include a speech from Bill Hutton, a Vietnam War-era veteran and former president of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. There will also be a flyover from the Condor Squadron made up of World War II North American AT-6 airplanes. Guests are asked to arrive early in order to ensure an available seat.
