Thursday is Veterans Day, but one memorial service will be held Sunday.
Pastor Stacy Steck of the Escazú Christian Fellowship, which meets at the International Baptist Church in Guachipelin, Escazú, reports that his congregation will hold a ceremony at 5 p.m. Sunday in partnership with The American Legion Post 10 and the Costa Rica detachment of the Marine Corp League.
In addition to the U.S. Veterans Day ceremony, the congregation will mark Remembrance Day, which is celebrated in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth nations.
Ambassadors from the British, Canadian and U. S. embassies will place wreaths and speak at the ceremony. Bugler Philip Barman and bagpiper Kevin Ludic will participate in the ceremony. The ceremony is open to all and everyone is cordially invited to attend, said the Legion.
Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the ceremony. For directions to the International Baptist Church there is a map at the Fellowship’s website www.ecfcr.net. Or those interested can call Pastor Steck at 8395-9563.
