Memorial Day readiness

A city crew has been working to prepare Hillside Cemetery for residents who wish to decorate graves this weekend for Memorial Day. Crews have been sealing roads to extend their good condition. The west half of the cemetery opened Tuesday with the east side to follow.

The Purcell Memorial Day Veterans Ceremony, annually held at Hillside Cemetery, will be conducted virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizer Jay Tate said the event will be live-streamed on Facebook on the page Purcell Memorial Day Veterans Service.

“We didn’t want to have to do it this way,” Tate said.

The event is set for Monday at 11 a.m.
