The Veterans Memorial Plaza at the high school will be open this Memorial Day, allowing the community to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.

The plaza, located at Anacortes High School's Seahawk Stadium (1600 20th Street) will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, May 31.

No events are planned; rather the school district invites the community in for reflection and tribute. The plaza is comprised of a memorial designed by local architect Brooks Middleton, with input from the Veterans Memorial Committee, as well as a display honoring two Medal of Honor recipients with local connections. Restrooms will be open during this time. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing.
