Memorial Day

Memorial Day service

Each year on the last Monday in May the United States of America honours all American service personnel  who have died in time of war. The New Zealand American Association and the United States Embassy jointly organise a service to mark Memorial Day at Old St Paul's, which has a historical connection with the US Marines in particular.

All welcome, and after the service you are invited to stay on for refreshments.
