VFW plans Ephrata Memorial Day program
In a joint effort between the American Legion Post No. 429, BPO Elks Lodge No. 1933, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 3376 and the Amvets Post No. 136, a Memorial Day program will be held beginning at 9 a.m. May 26 at Ephrata War Memorial Field.
Seating in the bleachers is available or bring a lawnchair.
The ceremony will be moved indoors to the Ephrata High School auditorium in case of inclement weather.
The program will feature a moving tribute to our fallen heroes, including a 21 gun salute.
The Ephrata High School Concert Band, under the direction of Scott Fairchild, will once again play during the ceremony, and Ethan Fasnacht is the soloist.
The Ephrata Police will place the honor wreath.
The Keynote Speaker is Brigadier General Jerry G. Beck Jr. He was appointed Deputy Adjutant General – Veterans Affairs July 8, 2013. In this position, he supervises the administration of assistance programs for nearly one million veterans and their dependents, as well as the operation of the commonwealth’s six veteran’s homes.
General Beck retired as the Deputy Adjutant General – Army for the Pennsylvania Army National Guard in August 2011.
Beck was born in Canonsburg. He graduated from Monongahela High School in Monongahela in 1972 and Millersville State College, Millersville, in 1975 with a bachelor of science in German. In January 1996, he received a master’s degree in instructional systems design from Pennsylvania State University. In 2011, he earned his PhD in organization and management with a concentration in leadership from Capella University. Before accepting a full time position with the National Guard, he was a high school Spanish and German teacher.
Refreshments will be available at the VFW located at 141 S. State St. for everyone attending directly following the service.
