BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA – The City of Rockledge will host its Third Annual Memorial Day Ceremony on Sunday.

The festivities will begin at 2 p.m. at Larry L. Schultz Park, located at 2560 Fiske Boulevard in Rockledge.

There will be feature guest speakers, special music courtesy of the Community Band of Brevard, Honor Guards from the Rockledge Police Department and VFW Rocket Post 4534, and a wreath-laying ceremony.

The Memorial Day Ceremony originated three years ago when VFW Rocket Post 4534 suspended its annual Memorial Day Parade.

The city felt that it was still very important to commemorate the significance of this special day.
