Memorial Day To Be Observed Here

Memorial Day

Over the years, Memorial Day has come to represent a lot of things: the beginning of the summer tourist season, the first major summer holiday for outdoor recreation, a major event for auto racing…but we need to never forget the true purpose of the national holiday.  That, of course, is to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could continue to live our American way of life.  To that end, the American Legion Post in Jackson will lead a series of observances in the valley where they will pay respects at the various cemeteries and at the bridge over the Snake River to remember those lost at sea.  The primary focus of the morning observances, however, will be at the town square at 10:00 am where Legionnaire David Bentlage says veterans, dignitaries and the public will gather.  He says usually there is a proclamation by the mayor and other dignitaries, and sometimes there are letters from other individuals like the Governor or a senator which are read.  There will be a bagpiper, 21 gun salute and a bugler playing taps. Bentlage urges area residents and visitors to join them on the square for the event.
