The evening closed with the 13th Annual Emerald Society & Pipeband March and Service commencing around 6 pm. To the sounds of pipebands from up and down the East Coast and beyond, visitors paid homage to all fallen law enforcement officers, especially those of Gaelic descent. Honor guard units from across the nation are standing watch at the Memorial center medallion, until flags are lowered to half staff at midnight in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day.
It was truly a day to remember and celebrate our fallen heroes.
