            The 51st Annual Mayor’s Memorial Day Ceremony will begin at 8:30 a.m. Monday (May 27) at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl.  The traditional placement of the wreath will be done by Mayor Jeremy Harris and General Bill Begert, Commander, Pacific Air Forces, assisted by representatives of the Girl Scout Council of Hawaii, Boy Scouts of America (Aloha Council) and an HPD Law Enforcement Explorer Scout.  Major General Edward V. Richardson, USAF (Retired) will serve as Master of Ceremony.
