Members of the Cape May County Militia will also be in attendance, as will the VFW Post 1963 Color Guard, Boy Scout Troop 76, and a large gathering of patriotic residents and visitors.

During Sea Isle’s Memorial Day Ceremony, wreaths will be placed at the base of Veterans Park’s Memorial Fountain, VFW Post 1963 Commander Charles Haines will lead a Roll Call of Sea Isle’s Honored Dead, patriotic hymns will be sung, and Taps will be played.

Immediately after the ceremony, Boy Scout Troop 76 will lead a procession to the JFK Boulevard Beach, where members of the Sea Isle City Beach Patrol will row a lifeguard boat beyond the breakers and set flowers adrift in honor of America’s Deceased Naval Heroes.
