Remembrance Day Events

Each year, the last Monday in May marks Memorial Day, a federal holiday in the United States honoring those who have lost their lives fighting for our freedoms by serving in the nation’s armed forces. The 10th Mountain Division Foundation will hold its 65th annual Memorial Day ceremony Monday at 11 a.m. at the 10th Mountain Division Monument Tennessee Pass near Ski Cooper, south of Vail. Arrive early for coffee and donuts from 9:30-11am. Lunch will be available after the ceremony at the Ski Cooper base lodge for $15. Seating is limited at the outdoor ceremony, so attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair and dress appropriately for the conditions, as it can be cooler at this altitude.

The Freedom Park Memorial Committee and VFW Post 10721 will host their 19th Annual Community Ceremony in memory of all veterans of the armed forces and emergency response agencies who have served our country. It will be at the Freedom Park Memorial American Flagpole Plaza in Edwards at 3 p.m. on the west side of the pond.

The service will feature music by Michelle Cohn Levy of B’nai Vail and the keynote speaker is Eagle County Commissioner Kathy Chandler Henry. There will also be a reading of the names of Eagle County heroes who have died in the line of duty.
