Iwo Jima Survivors event postponed

NEW HAVEN — The Iwo Jima Survivors’ third annual VJ Day Candlelight Ceremony of Remembrance, which was set for Aug. 14 , has been rescheduled for Aug. 20.

Except for the date, the details of the event are the same. It will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the National Iwo Jima Memorial Monument on Ella T. Grasso Boulevard.

Organizers postponed the event for a week because thunderstorms were expected Sunday.

Participants will be able to honor any service person who has died. The event is part of the National Spirit of ‘45 Day.

For information, call Gary at 860-291-9666.
