Memorial Day 2020

Though this year’s celebrations of remembrance may be different, we can all still remember those who are no longer with us. Be safe, be kind, and remember those that have been lost.

The Town of Breckenridge and the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance will be hosting a virtual Memorial Day Commemoration.

Virtual Commemoration

“Join the BHA, community leaders, and veterans as we honor the service and sacrifice of our fallen brothers and sisters in the US military. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be hosting the 2020 Commemoration as a virtual event. We will still be placing American flags at veterans’ grave sites at Valley Brook Cemetery to honor their sacrifices.”

Happy Mother’s Day! 💐💜 Orion and Oliver will be spoiling their moms today.
