Memorial Day services will be held Monday, May 27 at 7:45 a.m. at Veterans Park, across from Smith’s on Hillside Drive. Duration of the program will be about 45 minutes.

Seating will be provided, but attendees are welcome to bring their own seating.

Memorial Day was created to honor those who have paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom. It is our opportunity to stop and give thanks for the many who have died protecting that freedom.

In keeping with the solemn nature of Memorial Day, attendees are asked to keep cell phones off or silent during the program.

As with all Federal holidays, government offices, post offices, banks, libraries and other public facilities will be closed in observance of Memorial Day.
