A free Memorial Day celebration to honor and celebrate the military will be held 11 a.m.-4 p.m. May 27 at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum Trust Inc., 4141 Fifth Ave., Oakland.

Scheduled rain or shine, the day begins at 11 a.m. with a reflective ceremony in the auditorium honoring nearly 300 fallen Pennsylvania service members who made the ultimate sacrifice in the War on Terrorism.

The afternoon will include free museum admission, raffles and patriotic concert by The Brass Roots, museum officials say.

Family fun activities will include a bounce house, balloons, caricatures, face-painting, craft table with assorted patriotic crafts and spin art.

Bring blankets and chairs to picnic on the front lawn. Food and beverages also will be available for purchase.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
