The City of Woodstock will be hosting its annual Memorial Day special service of remembrance 10 a.m. to noon on Monday, May 30.

The event will be held at The Park at City Center, 101 Arnold Mill Road in Woodstock.

Tthe American Legion Post 316, Maj. Gen. Warren R. Johnson Marine Corps League Detachment 1311, Warriors’ Watch Riders, and other local veterans groups, will honor those who fought and died to keep America free.

Highlights of the event include the POW/MIA remembrance, the reading of Woodstock’s honor roll, placing of a memorial wreath, a dove release, rifle honors, and the playing of Taps. Additionally, there will be a performance by the Cobb New Horizons Band.

Also, guests are able to visit the Woodstock Memorial, which is 10 tons of polished granite dedicated to the Woodstock veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

The event is not rain or shine. In the past, if it has rained Woodstock has moved the event to the Chambers at City Center, according to Woodstock’s Marketing and Communications Manager Stacy Brown.

“We will notify the public of a cancellation or location change due to weather via our website/social media,” she said.

Woodstock officials encourage attendees to check the city website for updates before heading out to any event.
