55th County-Wide Veterans Memorial Service Program

Vet-MemorialFlyer-V8-1Every year in May, we pay Honor and Tribute to our Country’s Veterans who, for many, made the ultimate sacrifice so we could enjoy our many freedoms.

On Sunday, May 29th at 2:00pm, our service takes on even more meaning, as we celebrate 55 years of honoring Veterans with our Annual County-Wide Veterans Memorial Service Program at St. Charles Memorial Gardens.

The complimentary program, sponsored by the Memorial Services of Missouri, and Baue Funeral Homes, Crematory & Cemetery allows family members of Veterans who have passed away within the last year the opportunity to join us in our Poppy Ceremony. The names of their loved ones will be read and a bell will be rung for each Veteran to symbolize our deepest gratitude for their service.

This year, we welcome our guest speaker Wendell Webb, National Senior Commandant, Marine Corps League.

We encourage you to pause for a moment of silence and remembrance as you visit our cemetery gardens and see the thousands of flags flying in tribute to our service men and women.

Founded in 1961, St. Charles Memorial Gardens is the only cemetery in the St. Charles County area with a dedicated Veterans Garden and Memorial Service. As we gather at 2:00pm on Sunday, May 24th outside our “Field of Honor,” we will pay tribute to all Veterans and their surviving families.

Prior to our event, we will host a Flag Placement Day on Wednesday, May 25th at 9:00am. Veterans and volunteers from across the county will gather at St. Charles Memorial Gardens to place flags at each Veteran’s marker.  Anyone who wishes to participate in the flag placement may do so by contacting Baue Community Services at 636-946-4042 for more information.

Our program is free and open to the public. We welcome you, your family and friends to join us as we honor our veterans.
