River­bank Sa­lutes He­roes In Memo­rial Day Ser­vice

Riverbank News - - NEWS -

River­bank Mayor Richard O’Brien and the River­bank City Coun­cil will honor those men and women who have died while serv­ing in the Armed Forces with spe­cial recog­ni­tion on Memo­rial Day.

O’Brien pointed out that, for most, Memo­rial Day means warm weather, bar­be­cues and the beach, but he said that ‘memo­rial’ is there for a rea­son. He is invit­ing res­i­dents, es­pe­cially ac­tive duty mil­i­tary, vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies to par­tic­i­pate in a Memo­rial Day Ser­vice at the War Memo­rial Wall in front of the River­bank Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, 3600 Santa Fe later this month.

“Those who serve are en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate as an honor guard and flag ten­der,” O’Brien said. “We in­vite the com­mu­nity to help us honor those who gave their lives in the cause of free­dom.”

The event is sched­uled for 11:30 a.m. to noon on Mon­day, May 30.

O’Brien asks that RSVPs be di­rected to Luanne Bain at River­bank City Hall North, 6707 Third St., Suite A; or call 863-7122.
