This Memorial Day schedule time to honor the fallen.

There are several ways you can participate this Memorial Day weekend. Sure, it's the unofficial start of summer. It's a fun party weekend for most all of us. In between the cookouts, camping, and fun, find time to show your appreciation for those that have made the ultimate sacrifice. There are several events planned around Grand Junction that you can be a part of.

The Veterans Memorial Cemetery of Western Colorado has their annual ceremony scheduled for 10 am on Monday, May 28th. You can visit the Western Slope Vietnam War Memorial Park. It's located at 340 Highway 340 in Fruita.

If you can't make a ceremony you can drop by and pay your respects. The Veterans Memorial Cemetery of Western Colorado is located at 2839 Riverside Parkway here in Grand Junction. Noting we can do can ever repay the sacrifice that veterans have made. It's important that we take time and show respect. Also too, when you encounter a man or woman in uniform be sure and always thank them for their service.
