Memorial Day Celebration

A Memorial Day Celebration to honor those lost in service, and to raise awareness to the 22 veterans lost each day by suicide.


Please join us on Saturday, May 27, 2023 for a six (6) mile walk along Hwy. 58 South into Kingston carrying 22 American Flags. The walk will be led by local active duty and veteran service members.

Participants will begin the walk at the SR-72 / SR-58 Junction and end at the Roane County Courthouse steps at the flag pole.

Check points and additional start points will be located along the route or those who want to participate but do not or cannot walk the entire six (6) miles.

The walk will begin at 8:00 am, but we ask that you arrive at the Courthouse by 7:30 am as buses will be provided for transportation from the Courthouse to the starting point at the SR-72/ SR-58 junction. Restrooms will be available for use before and after event. Water will also be provided.


The 22 flags will be posted near the Courthouse steps at approximately 10:00 am.

This event will be RAIN or SHINE!
