Memorial Day Ceremony (CANCELLED AS OF SUNDAY, MAY 27)
We hope you will join us at the Beal Memorial Cemetery for the annual Memorial Day Ceremony at 10:00 a.m. on May 28th, hosted by the Veterans Tribute Tower Committee. Invitation information from Event Chairman, Mr. Tom Rice, below:

During the traditional salute to our veterans and fallen comrades, guests and organizations are invited to place a fresh flower at the base of the flagpole and render appropriate honors. 

In order that appropriate homage is paid to the deceased Veterans, we request that you arrive at the Ceremony as early as possible and turn in your “Roll Call” listing of the names of veterans who have expired since Memorial Day 2017, with your organization’s name at the top. It is crucial that we receive your list of names no later than 20 minutes prior to the ceremony.  Lists can be faxed in advance to (850)302-0316, or emailed to

The event starts at 10:00 a.m. and concludes at 11:00 a.m. Please note this time change from previous years—it is an attempt to avoid the extreme heat of midday.

For more information, call (850)302-0266, and thank you for your support.

Regular business hours at the City will resume on Tuesday, May 29th, but you can find more information about our services at our website by visiting or by following us on facebook at  Please have a safe weekend as we honor our nation’s fallen heroes.
