Memorial Day Services

Nevada’s Memorial Day Services will be held on Monday, May 27. Opening ceremonies are held in front of the Story County Administration Building on Sixth Street, where there will be a flag raising at 9:30 a.m., along with introductions of young people who’ve enlisted in the Armed Forces.
A procession to the City Cemetery — traveling from J Avenue north to Lincoln Highway on Sixth Street and then west on Lincoln Highway to First Street — will follow the early ceremony, and a longer program at the cemetery begins at approximately 10:30 a.m.
The Patriotic Council, which organizes the Memorial Day events, asks all those attending the service at the cemetery to observe the “restricted areas” when they are choosing where to put their own lawn chairs and blankets for seating. Some areas are set aside for distinguished guests and the Nevada High School Band. The program will be followed by a luncheon at the American Legion Hall. See details on the Calendar, page 16, of this issue.
*In case of rain, the cemetery service will be moved to the Community Building OR Christy Hall at the Story County Fairgrounds.
