Moreno Valley residents were treated to two events on Memorial Day. West Coast Thunder rolled into Moreno Valley at approximately 10:15 a.m. For nearly an hour, residents who lined up along Sunnymead Boulevard between Frederick Street and Heacock Street were able to be part of something special. Reports say nearly 10,000 bikers registered for this regionally significant event. The West Coast Thunder Bike Run is a fundraising effort supporting Riverside National Cemetery efforts to honorably, and respectfully bury indigent and lower-income veterans.

Colonel Russell A. Muncy reflects on the sacrifice of serving at Moreno Valley's Memorial Day Ceremony on May 26.


At 2 p.m. Remembering Our Heroes, the City's Memorial Day ceremony  provided a program to honor lives lost in service to the country. Families representing men and women killed in action were recognized with a rose ceremony and several groups provided music and program elements that created a Memorial Day to remember. Mayor Tom Owings emceed the event with Colonel Russell A. Muncy serving as the featured speaker. The following groups contributed to the program:

         Moreno Valley Master Chorale

         Moreno Valley Community Band

         North Ridge Elementary School Prime-Time Singers

         Canyon Springs High School JROTC Color Guard 

         Moreno Valley Unified School District Students 

         Knights of Columbus, A. F. Chelbana Assembly
