Woodlawn Memorial Park and Funeral Home hosted its 71st annual Memorial Day service.
Members of the community gathered at Woodlawn Memorial Park and Funeral Home in Gotha Monday, May 31, to pay their respects to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. The annual Memorial Day service honored and recognized all who have served in any branch of the United States Armed Forces, and gave attendees an opportunity to remember those who died in action. The event featured two keynote speakers — retired U.S. Army Col. Calvin Wimbish and Orange County Sheriff John Mina — and included music from the Orlando Concert Band, a rifle volley from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office honor guard, and performances by vocalists Keith Bolves and Wendy Proctor.
