The Kiwanis Club of Point Loma will again present an ecumenical Easter Sunrise Service at the Cabrillo National Monument, 1800 Cabrillo Memorial Drive in Point Loma, on Sunday, April 20.

The services will be held in the lower parking lot, giving those who attend a great early morning panoramic view of San Diego Harbor and the city behind it.

Club president Charles Perdue said this year’s service marks the 65th consecutive year the club of Point has presented the service.

The gates to the monument will open at 6 a.m. on Sunday, with the nondenominational service beginning at 6:30 a.m. There is seating for approximately 550 guests.

Speakers this year include Capt. Scott Adams, commanding officer, Naval Base Point Loma; Gary Jander, immediate past governor, Kiwanis CalNevHa District; and Doug Beckham, past lieutenant governor, Kiwanis Division 21. Chaplain Jerome Hinson of the Third Fleet will conduct the service.

The Navy Band Southwest will provide pre-service patriotic music, and the Naval Base Point Loma Color Guard will open the ceremony. Soloist Jojo Ito and accompanist Brent Johnson will be featured.

National Park Service visitor and parking fees are not in effect for the Easter Sunrise Service. Coffee, tea and pastries will be served immediately following the services.
