Washelli Schedule

  • 10:00 am– Flag placement at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Each of the white marble upright markers in the Veterans Section will receive a flag. Veterans and Scout groups, along with members of the community, will place the flags within about half an hour. We will have coffee, cocoa, and cookies for volunteers.

  • At 11:00 AM, the Service of Remembrance begins. This year will be a shortened service of remembrance to honor the day and honor our veterans. Please join our Veterans Memorial Cemetery Board and Evergreen Washelli staff for a brief memorial including the Washington State Guard, members of the NW Junior Drum and Pipe Band, and other important guests.

  • Evergreen Washelli is proud to hold the remains of several Medal of Honor Recipients. Please join us today in remembering them. We invite you to visit their graves, read their stories and see an image of the medals received. To assist in finding their location we’ve roped off the graves. Special markers have been placed at the grave, telling their story.
