2020 Memorial Day 500 Canceled!
We will still be putting the flags up for the Memorial Day weekend, and hopefully the banners get done so we can put them up also. As time comes closer, if we are able to hold a cemetery service, we will do so! Plans are to post biographies and photos of this year's honorees on this site and in the newspapers prior to Memorial Day. Please contact those who you normally contact regarding the 500 and let them know. This is a unique time in our Country. We will continue to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice everyday by enjoying our freedoms that we have and being proud to be a American! WE HOPE TO BE BACK IN 2021. Thank you for your support.
