A ceremony commemorating Pearl Harbor Day will begin at 9 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 7, in the Seaside Civic and Convention Center lobby.

The ceremony will include speakers and presentation of the flag. Seaside resident Bill Thomas, a Pearl Harbor survivor, will toss a wreath into the Necanicum River at 9:55 a.m., the time that Japanese bombs hit Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1942.

The wreath will be in memory of the more than 2,400 Americans who were killed in the attack.
