Since 1969 we have been proud to be considered part of the Milwaukee County’s War Memorial. As part of our continued commitment to honor veterans for their heroic service, we host a Flag Day Celebration each year in Peck Pavilion.
We hope you’ll join us as we “Honor the Dead by Serving the Living” at this very special tribute to the men and women of our military. This community event is free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations are needed.
