The Mayor’s Advisory Council for the Veterans Memorial Garden invites the public to a Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day ceremony at the enclosed shelter just north of the Garden in Antelope Park on Sunday, December 7. The event will begin at 11:55 a.m. to coincide with the time of the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941.

The Nebraska Liberty Bell will be rung seven times to open the program. The keynote address will be delivered by Ralph Naslund, State President of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association. The program also will include recognition of Pearl Harbor veterans, the playing of a recording of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Day of Infamy” speech and the playing of “Taps” by Lumir Vajgrt.
