The annual Memorial Day Ceremony is Monday, May 26, at Peachtree City Hall Plaza at 9 a.m. Special guest speaker will be Brigadier General Steven Hawkins, US Army (Ret.), who served as the World War Overseas Director for the American Battle Monuments Commission, overseeing the operation of memorial military cemeteries and U.S. monuments in 10 countries.
