EVENT DETAILS:  On Saturday, June 22nd, 2024, Lest We Forget will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. 


As part of that event, Tiscornia Beach will be closed to the public on Friday, June 21st to allow for set up.


On Saturday, June 22nd, Lest We Forget plans to hold two reenactments at 10AM and around noon or 1PM.  The re-enactments will consist of pyrotechnics, landing crafts, flyovers and reenactors shooting blanks.  Neighbors in the area should anticipate hearing loud sounds at these times from vehicles, planes and pyrotechnics which will simulate explosions.
