Monday, May 30, is Memorial Day— a time to remember and honor the sacrifices of those who died while serving our country in uniform.

There are several remembrance ceremonies in the area on Monday.
At 8 a.m. Monday, join The Lewisville Texan Journal for a low-key remembrance in front of Lewisville City Hall, 151 W. Church Street, in front of the Veterans Memorial.

The brief service is a time for participants to say a few words, recite a poem, remember a loved one who served, or share a prayer or song.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9168 (VFW) will hold their annual remembrance at the Old Hall Cemetery on McGee Lane in Lewisville at 10 a.m. Monday. A bugler will play “Taps” at this formal gathering.

The Town of Flower Mound holds its observance at 10 a.m. Monday. The program will feature key note speakers from the military and local leaders, color guard, patriotic music, bagpipers, and a wreath presentation.

The Honor Wall, with pictures of fallen heroes, will be displayed during the event and displayed inside Town Hall for two weeks.

All events are free and open to the public.

The Lewisville Texan Journal hopes that everyone enjoys the day, and whatever fun activities they have planned for the holiday, and that each will pause to remember the price paid for the freedom.
