The Unforgotten, Run to Tahoma celebration is Saturday

PORT ORCHARD — Six deceased veterans will be honored at “The Unforgotten, Run to Tahoma Celebration of Life” ceremony on Saturday during Memorial Day weekend at the Kitsap County Administration Building Plaza, 619 Division St. in Port Orchard.

The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. outside the county’s Administration Building. Due to COVID restrictions, attendees are asked to observe local safety and social distancing requirements.

The remains of six individuals who were unclaimed by their families will be received from the Kitsap County Coroner and escorted to Tahoma National Cemetery near Kent in a formal processional including local veteran motorcycle clubs.

Officials said the public is welcome to attend and participate in the processional. However, the cemetery can only allow 25 individuals on site. While the larger ceremony can’t occur this year, the six individual remains will be honored at next year’s ceremony, they noted.

The Kitsap County Veterans Advisory Board and other veterans groups are coordinating the event.
