[May 21, 2019]     Memorial Day will be observed in Atlanta on Monday, May 27th as the community pauses to remember and reflect upon the service and sacrifices made by veterans.

The day will begin with the Atlanta United Methodist Church Men's breakfast at the Atlanta firehouse located at 205 SE Vine from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

The Veteran's Memorial Ceremony & Atlanta Bank Concert will begin at 10:00 a.m. on the lawn of the Atlanta Public Library, 100 Race Street. Seating is limited; please bring a lawn chair for use during the ceremony.

We respectfully request the presence of living veterans to attend this event to hone their fallen comrades.

This year's speaker will be Chaplain (Major) Carl Johnston, US Army retired and the pastor of the AUMC.
