Memorial Day Events
The American symbol of freedom is also a symbol of sacrifice. In Collin County, 42 flags wave – one for each Plano serviceman who has died for the Stars and Stripes. The clouds parted just in time for Plano’s annual Sunset at Memorial Park.
Several hundred people turned out at Laurel Land Memorial Park in Fort Worth for a Memorial Day service. The day’s events began with the raising of the flag by the Southwest High School ROTC.
Memorial Day may be the unofficial start of summer, but it’s also the time to honor America’s fallen soldiers, who valiantly gave their lives defending our country.
