Memorial Dedication Postponed

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Monday is Memorial Day, and typically on this a day, members of the community would gather in the Town Square to honor and mourn the military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. This year was to be a special Memorial Day as a dedication of the newly installed Veterans Monument was also planned. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the current State Public Health Orders in place and a concern for everyone’s safety, this year’s Memorial Day Ceremony and the formal dedication of the Veterans Monument on Town Square have been postponed. However, members of the American Legion and VFW will still be placing flags on the graves of veterans buried in Jackson Hole cemeteries. They ask that all our citizens observe a moment of silence at noon on Memorial Day to remember all veterans living and deceased.
