National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremony

Sunday, December 4th, 2022 11:00 am
 
Pearl Harbor Veterans Memorial Bridge, Easthampton, Mass.
 
The National 2022 Theme is : “Everlasting Legacy” 

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Ceremony is an opportunity to honor the sacrifice and dedication of our "Greatest Generation" both civilian and military, who endured incredible sacrifices on December 7, 1941, the "date which will live in infamy," as well as all who served during World War II. 

The President of the United States of America proclaims December 7, 2022, as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. He encourages all Americans to observe this solemn day of remembrance and to honor our military, past and present, with appropriate ceremonies and activities. In an effort to honor the 2022 Theme, “Everlasting Legacy”, we have moved our local remembrance ceremony to the first Sunday in December. This will allow a greater opportunity for us to invite and involve local patriotic youth from local Scouting Troops, and youth members of the Sons of the American Legion, and other community oriented school and civic groups. This involvement of our Nation's youth will insure the "Everlasting Legacy." 

Together the Easthampton and Central Hampshire Veteran Services, Veteran Councils of Northampton Easthampton, along with area Veteran organizations are proud to announce that a National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Ceremony will be conducted at the Oxbow boat launch parking area next to the Pearl Harbor Veteran Memorial Bridge along Rt. 5 on Sunday, December 4th 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Participating Veteran Organizations include area posts of The American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars.

The event is open to the public. Members of the Military, along with Federal, State, and Local Officials will be in attendance. Veteran Service Organizations from any and all communities are encouraged to attend and welcome to bring Unit flags and Color Guards. No prior notice is needed. All units / organizations present will be included in the ceremony.
