The ceremony was small with just about 30 people in attendance. It was opened with a prayer and the singing of the National Anthem, by those in attendance.

Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson spoke, recognizing its history and significance of the day, as well as noting that this was the first public ceremony she had spoken at in over a year because of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
