Adjustments have been made to the annual Wiregrass Memorial Day Ceremony usually held at Sunset Memorial Park.
In what would mark its 14th year as a patriotic ceremony, this year’s event will be held without a formal ceremony Monday. Guest can visit Sunset Memorial Park and receive an American flag graveside marker from 10 a.m. to noon.
“Honestly, I am a little bit heartbroken we have to change it this year,” Sunset owner Robert Byrd said. “But, I understand why. Everyone’s safety is of the utmost importance. Many people look forward to this event every year as a way to honor their brave loved ones. I am glad we can at least offer a small memento of our appreciation to the soldiers’ families and friends.”
