PENINSULA — Long Beach Peninsula residents and visitors gathered Monday to remember and honor all those who have fallen in defense of our country.

Ron Robbins, commander of the Don R. Gable American Legion Post 48, presided over events that began in Surfside at 8:30 a.m. and concluded with lunch in Ilwaco. In contrast to some years, the weather was cool but otherwise pleasant, with outdoor events mostly centering around area cemeteries and flagpoles.
