Provo City’s annual Memorial Day Service will be held on Monday, May 30 at 10:00 am at the Provo City Cemetery (610 S. State Street) in honor of all the servicemen and women who have fought and sacrificed for our country throughout our Nation’s history and all those who are fighting today both at home and abroad. The event, which was planned by the Provo City Veterans Council and America’s Freedom Festival, is free of charge and open to the public. In the case of inclement weather, the service will move to the Covey Center for the Arts, 425 W. Center Street.
