This weekend, as we gather together with friends and neighbors, we urge everyone to remember that Memorial Day is our collective moment to honor the men and women in uniform who’ve fallen in service to our country. Our enduring gratitude goes out to veterans across the state and to those who have experienced the loss of a fallen hero. We honor you and your loved ones, and we commemorate the sacrifice of those who are gone.

Please remember that DHR Central and our local departments will be closed on Monday, in observance of this day to reflect. Have a safe Memorial Day.
