Memorial Day Events

Posted on: May 6th, 2016 by admin No Comments

As published in the Castle Pines Connection, story by Elizabeth Wood West

Memorial Day, originally referred to as “Decoration Day,” is observed every year on the last Monday of May.  This federal holiday was established after the American Civil War in 1868 by the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union Veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois.  It was designated as a time for the nation to honor the men and women who served in the military by decorating their graves with flowers.  Today, many people follow this Memorial Day tradition by honoring both veterans and family members.

Below is a list of several Memorial Day ceremonies that are open to the public:

  • Ft. Logan National Cemetery – ceremony at 11 a.m.
  • Castle Rock Ceremony – Cedar Hill Cemetery at 10 a.m.
  • Sedalia Ceremony – St. Philip in the Field at 11 a.m.
  • Parker Ceremony – “Memorial Day Veterans Service of Remembrance,” held at Parker Cemetery at 10 a.m.
  • Highlands Ranch – No official ceremony: the Highlands Ranch American Legion will place flags at the Highlands Ranch Veterans Monument to honor fallen veterans.

For more information, contact David Maxwell, manager of Douglas County Office of Veterans Affairs at (303) 663-6257 or email dmaxwell@douglas.co.us

Presented by the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce, the Castle Rock “Lighting of the Star” has been a community event shared by residents dating back to 1935. The same spirit of volunteerism, generosity and love of tradition exists today as Castle Rock businesses and residents prepare to celebrate Starlighting downtown on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  This year’s date is November 21, 2015.
This year’s celebration will again include: hot chocolate, non profit booths, strolling entertainers, live entertainment and of course Santa will be present for photos and visits.  Don’t forget to enjoy the Rink at the Rock, an outdoor ice skating rink in downtown Castle Rock as well.  The Starlighting ceremony will begin promptly at 5:00 pm and the lighting of the Star will be at approximately 5:30 pm
