10th Annual Lubbock Memorial Day Service Approaching
An annual event remembering our nation’s fallen soldiers is coming up later this month.
The tenth annual Memorial Day Service will be held at the City of Lubbock Cemetery on Monday, May 28th at 10 a.m.
The event is hosted by the Nancy Anderson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, American Legion Post 575, and the City of Lubbock Cemetery.
Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Boy Scouts will place American flags on graves designated with a Veterans Affairs Memorial headstone. It is estimated that more than 3,000 veterans are buried at City of Lubbock Cemetery.
The main address at the event will be delivered by Carl Isett, Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve and former state representative from District 84.
The public is invited to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to the ceremony, as seating is limited.
The City of Lubbock Cemetery is located at 2011 East 31st Street, two blocks east of MLK Blvd. and 31st Street.
