Memorial Day is a day to remember all those who have laid down their life for all of us. Please join the American Legion Post No. 63 and the Harney County Chamber of Commerce in a Memorial Day March.
Walk in memory of someone you know who has fallen in the line of duty. Meet at Burns High School at 9 a.m. Bring your own signs or use supplies provided to make a poster to carry. At 10 a.m., march on down to the Burns Cemetery. Join together at 11 a.m. for a prayer service at the kneeling soldier, and share a memory of the person you are walking for. At 11:30 a.m., visit the graves of fallen soldiers and pay your respects.
Later that evening at 5 p.m., head down to the Burns Elks Lodge for a tri-tip dinner hosted by the American Legion, Burns Elks, and Erickson’s Thriftway. All emergency services personnel are invited to enjoy a meal for free, guests are $10, and children under 5 are free.
Call the Harney County Chamber of Commerce for more information, 541-573-2636.
