Over the weekend Kitsap Residents took a moment to remember the brave men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom we enjoy today.

At events held on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, community members gathered around the north end to share in remembrance and reflect on what these brave service members have all given in the name of freedom.

On Saturday, the Driftwood Key Clubhouse held a remembrance prior to celebrating its annual Driftwood Key Day. At the event Roger Schultze recognized former and current military service members as well as the fallen. Schultze’s speech was followed by a rifle salute.

On Sunday at the Hansville Cemetery, the names of service members interred at the site were read by organizers while a bell tolled in their honor. Locke Morgan, a pastor at the nearby Hansville Community Church spoke at the event, and led the audience in a brief prayer.

On Monday, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2463 held its annual Memorial Day service in downtown Poulsbo. Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson spoke at the event and other featured guests included the Department of Washington VFW Auxiliary President Ruth Lamoureux and the color guard from the Bremerton Naval Hospital. A rifle salute followed the event as well, courtesy of the VFW North Kitsap Weaver Post.
