Because all gave some, and some gave all. Celebrate the special connection that General Logan has to Memorial Day in Logan Circle – Monday, May 30, 1:00pm

Memorial Day is a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those who are at rest. It’s a day to be with the family and remember. We encourage our friends and neighbors to bring a blanket and picnic lunch for you and your family, including those with four legs, to this year’s annual Logan Circle Memorial Day Observance. Monday’s program, starting at 1:00pm, includes a wreath-laying ceremony with the Honorable Eric Fanning – Logan Circle neighbor and newly appointed Secretary of the Army, and live musical performances by the Washington Capitals’ Bob McDonald and the Brassivity Brass Quintet. Be a part of this special neighborhood celebration!”

    I don’t go very year but often go to this ceremony. It’s nice and Logan Circle is so pretty this time of year. In case you didn’t hit the link Gen. John Logan declared the first Memorial Day for May 30, 1868. Not mentioned is the fact that his house is at the north corner of Logan Circle and P.

    The program varies a bit from year to year, but you get a capsule history of the area. I’ve gone a couple times.
