TAPS at Twilight

   TAPS is a major local community event arranged by the St. Simons Rotary Club to honor the men and women who have fallen in the service of our country, those who have valiantly served and returned, and those who are serving today. The tribute was begun in 1991 as an annual observance of Memorial Day.

   TAPS will be held May 27, 2019 at 6:45 pm at Neptune Park Bandstand, SSI.
