Letter: Honor the fallen on Monday

Honor the fallen on Monday

Dear Editor:

Memorial Day ceremonies will be held at noon Monday at Roaring Fork Veterans Memorial, located on the east side of the Pitkin County Courthouse at 506 E. Main St.

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

For more information contact Dan Glidden at 970-927-4183 or Dick Merritt at 970-927-5178.
