Memorial Day services Monday


Staff Writer

Memorial Day may be an unofficial start to the summer season, but it is also a day to remember those who have served or are currently serving our country, with events scheduled in Pagosa Springs Monday, May 26.

Mullins-Nickerson American Legion Post 108 will conduct a memorial service at the Legion Hall, 287 Hermosa St., next to Town Park, beginning 9 a.m.

Following the service, American Legion members and others in attendance will depart the Legion Hall for Hilltop Cemetery for a memorial service at 10:15 a.m. to honor deceased veterans — following the Catholic Mass held at Hilltop.

The public is encouraged to attend both Memorial Day ceremonies to honor those Americans who have fallen in defense of their country.
