Memorial Day Ceremony

When: Mon., May 26, 10:30 a.m. 2014

As a three-day holiday weekend approaches, students and 9-to-5 workers rejoice at the chance to relax on an extra day off. That’s fine, but don’t forget why that day has been set aside for recognition. Whether or not you’re part of a family with active or retired military members, it's important to consider the sacrifices others have made for us, past and present. Many community events that don’t include ridiculous excuses for a furniture or car-dealer sale are being held around the Inland Northwest this weekend, from community breakfasts and picnics to a new veterans memorial dedication at the Valley Fourth Memorial Church in Spokane Valley.
