Linn Grove Cemetery will host its 2019 Memorial Day Program on Monday, May 27, at 9 a.m. For over 100 years the staff at Linn Grove Cemetery, on behalf of and in conjunction with various Weld County Military Organizations, has honored veterans past and present with a formal Memorial Day ceremony.
“The Memorial Day program allows us all as a community the ability to reflect and recognize our service men and women, both past and present, who have protected our rights and freedoms through their sacrifices,” said David Naill, cemetery manager.
This year’s keynote address will be delivered by retired educator and patriot, Wilma Stovall Heckman. The program will also feature resident emcee Bob Bernd. Chad Young will provide patriotic music and the Greeley Police Department Honor Guard, along with numerous veterans’ organizations, will participate in the annual ceremony as well. The program generally lasts just shy of one hour
Weather permitting, Linn Grove will post the “Avenue of Flags” which consist of nearly 200 lost veterans donated casket flags along the main avenues of the grounds.
The program will proceed on the cemetery grounds rain or shine.
