A Memorial Day ceremony will be held in the auditorium of our Upper Keys Government Center in Key Largo on Monday, May 30th, promptly at 11AM.  A United States Coast Guard honor guard, our community band, an accomplished Sheriff’s Office bagpiper, a powerful Memorial Day tribute video and an esteemed Gold Star father delivering our keynote address, will all join together in celebrating this prestigious event.
