In memory of those who served

While today is seen by many as simply a day off, it’s also a day set aside to remember those who’ve fallen in military service to our country.

The largest observance in our area is at Evergreen Washelli, 11111 Aurora Ave. N., where they’ll be holding their 85th annual Memorial Day service today starting at 1:30 p.m. A guided tour of the Veterans Memorial Cemetery, one time envisioned as “The Arlington of the West,” will follow.

Here is a clip Evergreen Washelli made of their 2010 Memorial Day Service. It starts off a bit slow, but stick with it – it includes some stirring photography in the back half.
