Coupeville’s annual Memorial Day parade is cancelled, but the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce is encouraging everyone to participate in socially responsible festivities during the holiday weekend.

“We cannot lose sight of what this weekend, and especially Monday means,” Lynda Eccles, executive director of the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce, said in a prepared release.

The Coupeville Chamber of Commerce will decorate the Garden Club barrels with flags and invited children from the Boys and Girls Club to paint posters to be displayed outside the chamber office at Alexander and Main streets.

“We also encourage everyone to decorate your front lawns, hang out flags and celebrate this special weekend to honor those we have lost,” Eccles said.
