About 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. We request one full minute of silence by all in attendance at 9:08 pm. At 9:09 pm, Taps will play simultaneously by buglers strategically placed on Lake Wawasee, Syracuse Lake, and Papakeechie Lake. 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. You may join us in celebration from your pier, pontoon, the shore at public areas, Lakeside Park, or Oakwood. Photograph: Larry Baumgardt.
