Veterans Park bell ringing set


On the last Friday of every month at 1 p.m. a ceremonial bell ringing is held at the Veterans’ Park located next to the courthouse on Lincoln Street. 

The ceremony is held to honor Clallam County veterans and servicemen who have died in the previous month. 

Each fallen soldier's name is read with the branch in which he or she served, conflict served (if applicable) and awards received (if applicable) followed by a ringing of the Liberty Bell replica. 

After all names are recognized there is a formal presentation of the United States flag, a three-volley weapon salute and the playing of taps. 

All are encouraged and invited to pay tribute. 

On Feb. 22, 29 fallen veterans will be honored.
