On May 29th, we will serve 900 people at our annual Memorial Day celebration "You Are Not Forgotten" honoring our U.S. Military veterans who make up a substantial part of the homeless population of Seattle.

We are so thankful to those who have served our country and have fought for our freedom. It is our privilege to honor them on this special day. At 12 pm, the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Honor Guard will honor our veterans. Following the ceremony there will be a message of gratitude and inspiration by Pastor Russ Williams, retired U.S. Naval Service. BBQ lunch will be served immediately following the program at 1 pm.
