Taps Across the Water at Dusk
Chautauqua-Wawasee and Syracuse American Legion Post #223 are collaborating for a Memorial Day tribute to honor veterans and those who have died in the performance of their duties while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
Both solo and echo renditions of Taps will be audible depending on your location. Participating musicians include members of our community and surrounding areas, including veterans, community bands, high schools, educators, and professionals.
On Sunday, May 29, at 9:09 pm, Taps will be played simultaneously by buglers strategically placed on Wawasee, Syracuse Lake, and Papakeechie Lake. Taps will be audible on all three lakes. We are requesting one minute of silence starting at 9:08 prior to the performance. Participating musicians include members of our community and surrounding areas, including veterans, community bands, high schools, educators, and professionals. The musical director is Dr. Matt Murdock, an educator who resides in North Webster.
