2014 Time of Remembrance September 27 and 28th, 2014

September 27th and 28th 2014, a statewide event is being planned to honor the families and comrades of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Hawaii and Alaska's Fallen during this Global War on Terrorism. This tribute, being held in the cities of Pasco, Richland, Kennewick and West Richland, Washington, honor those who have died for their country and the families left behind. The 2014 "Time of Remembrance" committee, is leading this effort.

Saturday, September 27th the families and fellow comrades of the fallen will have the opportunity to privately meet for a time of sharing, and will attend break-out sessions which will provide information to assist in the process of coping with their loss and sacrifice. A Candlelight Vigil will take place at Columbia Park at the Veteran's Memorial in Kennewick. The public is invited to join the families at the beautiful Candlelight Ceremony next to the Columbia River. The Vigil will start at 7:30 pm.

Sunday, September 28th, there will be an official State Recognition Ceremony hosted by the City of West Richland at Flat Top Park. Our goal is to have each of our heroes memory represented. This will be the seventh year for the families of Washington brought together for a time of comfort and healing. We encourage all citizens to attend this important event as we give back to those who have given their all. Please help us welcome the Families of the Fallen from the States of Oregon, Idaho, Hawaii and Alaska for the first time. The Memorial Ceremony will begin at 11:00 am.
