Memorial Day activities in honor of deceased veterans will be held around the county on Monday, May 30.
The public is encouraged to share in these Memorial Day activities. Please, take a few minutes from your busy holiday weekend to recognize those men and women of our armed forces who were killed during times of war.
Memorial Day is a sacred day to all war veterans. America’s collective consciousness demands that all citizens be reminded of the deaths of their fellow countrymen during wartime. By honoring the nation’s war dead, we preserve their memory and thus their service and sacrifice. All U.S. flags should be displayed at half-staff during the morning hours. At noon, they should be raised back to full-staff.
