Auburn area veterans and residents turned out in spite of the sprinkles on Monday to observe Memorial Day beginning at 9 AM at the New Auburn Cemetery. The theme of the festivities was to remember as many communities have canceled events due to lack of interest. Auburn Mayor Kevin Hanley quoted Abraham Lincoln urging us all to remember.
Congressmen Tom McClintock announced during his address that thanks to volunteer efforts the flag that flies over the war memorial at the New Auburn Cemetery will now be illuminated.
Congressmen McClintock then donated a flag to the New Auburn Cemetery that flew over our nation’s capital. Festivities continued at the Old Auburn Cemetery, the Newcastle Cemetery and in Roseville at the Placer County Courts where a new Vietnam Memorial has been dedicated and the Maidu Indian Cemetery.
