The Program

In addition to having Senator Roth as the featured speaker, the community can look forward to a memorable program including the following contributions:

  • Riverside National Cemetery’s Semper Fi #1 Memorial Honor Detail will present colors and perform the “13-Fold” Ceremony. The Semper Fi #1 Memorial Honor Detail is made up of retired or former Marines who volunteer their time to honor veterans that are interred at Riverside National Cemetery as well as help create distinction among community events by maintaining the honorable display and handling of the United States flag.
  • The Moreno Valley Master Chorale and violin students from Tuning Sounds, a local music and performing arts program, are performing several patriotic songs and melodies. The Moreno Valley Master Chorale was founded in 1986 to produce, promote, and preserve the live choral experience and is active with several annual performances and participation in many City of Moreno Valley and regional events.
  • Members of the Knights of Columbus, A.F. Chelbana Assembly will lay the wreath in honor of all who have served the country. The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal organization that offers men leadership training through active involvement and volunteer opportunities in the parish of St. Christopher's and throughout the community.

The ceremony will be followed by an informal reception with light refreshments and displays of artwork and thoughtful letters prepared by Moreno Valley students.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive
To support the hospitality service provided by volunteers at March Air Reserve Base’s Hangar 385 for departing and returning war zone soldiers, the City will be accepting contributions of peanut butter (creamy or chunky) and jelly (strawberry or grape). Since 2004, soldiers have been greeted and sent off by volunteers who work hard to be that “little bit of home” for so many who need it before they leave or as soon as they return.
