Plaque Dedication

A Memorial Plaque to honor and remember all who have served has been placed near the entrance of the Covina Episcopal Church. This plaque was dedicated during the evening service on Sunday November the 7th.

A ceramic Remembrance Day Poppy was placed on the alter at the beginning of the service. This poppy is one of the 888,246 poppies that were displayed at the Tower of London as part of the 2014 Remembrance Day Observance of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WW I.
