Placing roses on veterans' graves

Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Evergreen Washelli Memorial Park Sunday May 12, 10:00am, 11220 Aurora Ave N, Seattle 98133.

Volunteers from the Seattle University ROTC will be placing more than 1,200 long-stemmed roses from the “Ten Grands” concert at gravesites at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Evergreen Washelli Memorial Park.

The roses are a gift from Ten Grands Seattle, a benefit concert presented in partnership with the Seattle Symphony.

Individual roses that first adorned the stage at the 12th annual “Ten Grands” concert at Benaroya Hall the previous evening will be placed at the gravesites honoring veterans during a brief ceremony starting at 10am and will take approximately one hour to complete.

The public is invited to observe or participate in this notable event. The event will take place at the Doughboy statue in the Evergreen Washelli Veterans Cemetery.
