Memorial Day is a time to reflect on the brave men and women from ALL wars who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Parades and cookouts have become a tradition, but the most important activities are those that involve war veterans.
What can be more appropriate than the sky crying on Memorial Day? It may ruin most holiday plans, but the Orange Memorial Day Committee has one significant ceremony that it never cancels, no matter what the weather is like.
The Committee has canceled the Memorial Day parade for today, and it won’t be rescheduled. But more importantly, the Memorial Day Ceremony scheduled for 10:30 a.m. WILL still take place, not at the gazebo, but inside the gym at the High Plains Community Center as it did in 2018.
Please come out to honor those who died to secure our freedom.
