The community is invited to come out the the annual St. Simons Rotary TAPS at Twilight program on Memorial Day to honor not only the men and women who have fallen in the service of our country, but those who have valiantly served and returned, and those who serve today. This tradition, begun in 1991 and presented by the St. Simons Rotary will continue Monday, May 27, at Neptune Park. Patriotic music will be performed by The Golden Isles Community Band from the St. Simons Casino bandstand beginning at 6:00 p.m. The program will commence promptly at 6:45 p.m.

The invocation will be conducted by U.S. Air Force Major General (Ret.) William B. “Burt” Davitte. The program will also include an honor guard presentation, presentation of the floral wreath provided by Anabela Tortorell accompanied by a bagpipe rendition of “Amazing Grace,” patriotic music including the National Anthem, anthems for each branch of service and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” sung by Jim Broussard, Music Director Christ Church Frederica. The ceremony will conclude with the playing of “Taps.” The Memorial Day Address will be provided by guest speaker U.S. Army Colonel (Ret.) Kevin “Red Eagle” Brown.

The event is free and open to the public; guests are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets as seating is not provided.
