Memorial Day in Golden Colorado

Memorial Day is one week from today (May 30th).  The Golden VFW Post 4171 will raise the Avenue of Flags at the Golden Cemetery (map) at 6:30AM, and they will remain up till sunset.  At 10:45AM, the VFW will lead a parade from Ulysses Park down West 10th Avenue to the cemetery.  At 11, they will conduct a flag service in the Veterans section of the cemetery.

There will also be a ceremony at the Marine Corps Memorial (intersection of Highways 6 and 40–map) at 2PM.  The program will include color guard, bag pipes, flyover, guest speaker, taps, rifle salute when appropriate, and recognitions.  Please bring your own chairs if you are unable to stand for more than 30 minutes without assistance.  They don’t always have chairs available.  Parking for this event is generously offered by the Home Depot in the shopping area south of the Memorial.
