Memorial Day

Mill Valley honored those who served our country in a variety of ways this past Monday. The Mill Valley Volunteer Firefighter's Association hosted their annual Pancake Breakfast in front of City Hall in the morning.

Following the breakfast, participants gathered in Lytton Square for a flag raising ceremony. The square, named after Lytton Plummer Barber, was the first solder from Mill Valley to die in World War I.

Mayor Jessica Sloan presented a new plaque commemorating his service this year. The ceremony also included speeches from elementary school students, past city council members, and local veterans (including Kyle Maxwell, a Mill Valley Police Department detective). 

The flag ceremony gave way to the start of Mill Valley's traditional Memorial Day Parade, which had an altered route this year due to construction on Miller Ave. 

Thank you to everyone who worked to honor our veterans this Memorial Day.
