The Maywood Bataan Day Organization asks you to “save the date” for the next annual Maywood Bataan Day Service. As always (or at least since 1942), the service will be the second Sunday in September, which this year is September 9th.

The service will begin at 2:30pm with a concert of military and other appropriate musical pieces presented by the US Navy Great Lakes Ceremonial Band under the direction of Chief Musician Brandon Banbee.

At 3 pm, there will be a color guard presentation to start off the service.
