American Legion Post 83, of Glenwood Springs, would like to ask of your assistance. With Memorial Day quickly approaching, we need volunteers to assist us and the Noon Rotary club in posting over 500 U.S. flags by the fallen and deceased veterans’ graves.

If you would like to partake in the true purpose of the Memorial Day Weekend, we would love to have you join us. We will meet at 4:00 on Friday, May 24, near the brick building in the Rosebud Cemetery. If you have any questions, you can reach Dan E. LeVan at 618-1910.

The American Legion Post 83 will be conducting its annual Memorial Day Commemoration on at 11 a.m. Monday, May 27, at the Rosebud Cemetery. General public is more than invited to attend the ceremony which gave the upcoming three day weekend its name.
