SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. - Siskiyou County is going on with its Memorial Day celebration for those in Mount Shasta.

Planned for May 25, the event will begin at 11 a.m. and will be a brief tribute to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who died while in service.

"Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the ceremony will be brief, but it will include a barbecue lunch provided by Walmart Heart and the Mount Shasta Memorial Chapel and Park," the sheriff's office shared.

This year's celebration will be dedicated to Mt. Shasta native and war hero Tony Ginocchio, who helped acquire the flagpole in the veteran area of the memorial park.

Ginocchio was a Vietnam combat veteran who earned multiple stars and Purple Hearts during his 17-years of service with the army.

At the event, Sheriff Jon Lopey will speak, there will be a 21-gun salute and Vietnam veteran and former U.S. Marine Captain Bob Singleton will play taps for the fallen.

Due to the coronavirus, attendees will be asked to maintain social distancing and wear face masks. Those with symptoms of a cold, flu or any other illness are asked to not attend.

When the meal is served, there will be limited and spaced seating, as well as the chance to take the food to-go.

The event will be held at the Mount Shasta Memorial Chapel and Park, located at 830 Lassen Lane, beginning at 11 a.m.
