Memorial Day Services

Monday, May 31, 2021

Since the earliest ceremonies in small American towns following the Civil War, we have gathered on Memorial Day to honor and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation. As in those early days of laying wreaths and placing flags, our national day of remembrance is often felt most deeply among the families and communities who have personally lost friends and loved ones. All Americans must take a moment to remember the sacrifice of our valiant military service members, first responders and their families. Memorial Day is a day of both celebration and grief, accounting for the honor of our heroes and reflecting on their tragic loss. A special note of thanks: To the City of Fort Lupton Public Works Department for preparing the cemetery for this memorial. To the Cemetery Committee for their ongoing care of our hallowed ground.
