SUBJECT:  Historic Linn Grove Cemetery Memorial Day Program
 
On behalf of, and in conjunction with the respective Weld County Military Organizations, Linn Grove Cemetery will be hosting the 2013 Memorial Day Program on Monday, May 27th at 9:00 a.m. at Linn Grove Cemetery, 1700 Cedar Ave., Greeley, Colorado.
 
Putting our lives into harm’s way for a cause greater than ourselves is such a sacrifice that it is beyond comprehension to most of us.  Yet, throughout the history of this country, many of our loved ones have made that choice.  Memorial Day gives us time to reflect, to recognize and appreciate not only the soldier who has died for the rights and freedoms we enjoy every day, but every service man or woman who has served.  In addition, we need to remember and appreciate their loved ones, who have also made sacrifices just by being a spouse, parent, sibling, relative or close friend. 
  
Please join us in honoring our Veterans past and present, at Linn Grove Cemetery for our 139th annual Memorial Day Program, on Monday, May 27th at 9:00 a.m.  This year’s program will feature Bob Bernd as Emcee, Corporal Ralph (Mac) McClure, USMC, Retired as guest speaker, White Doves for Hope Release, the GPD Honor Guard, and numerous Military Organizations.
 
For additional information contact Linn Grove Cemetery at (970) 350-9386, or visit our website at http://greeleygov.com/LinnGroveCemetery . This year’s event will proceed regardless of weather conditions, however, the Avenue of Flags display will be dependent upon qualifying conditions.
