Salute our soldiers on Memorial Day

Dear Editor:

Memorial Day ceremonies will be held at noon Monday, May 30, at the Roaring Fork Veterans Memorial located on the east side of the Pitkin County Courthouse at 506 E. Main St., Aspen. The public is cordially invited. Veterans are encouraged to wear items of military memorabilia.

Following the ceremony, Aspen Elks Lodge #224 is hosting a community picnic at Connor Park next to City Hall. Congress is asking all citizens to observe a moment of silence at 3 p.m. in memory of our nation’s fallen military men and women.

GrassRoots TV will be continuously running interviews of local veterans participating in the Library of Congress Veterans History Project throughout Memorial Day.

For further information, contact Dan Glidden at (970) 927-4183 or Dick Merritt at (970) 927-5178.

Lt. Col. Dick Merritt

U.S. Marine Corps (Retired)
