Memorial Day Service in Turlock
- Published: Saturday, 26 May 2012 06:57
The Turlock Memorial Day Service has been a tradition at Turlock Memorial Park since 1963. Both Mayor John Lazar and Congressman Jeff Denham will be present at the service.
Memorial Day originated after the Civil War in order to show honor and remembrance of those who lost their lives in battle. Since then, however, the holiday has extended to remember and honor all Americans who have died in all wars throughout United States history.
The Veteran of Foreign Wars (VFW) and the American Legion Rex Ish Post 88 will lead the Turlock Memorial Day Service on Monday.
