While many think of Memorial Day as the start of summer, it is really a day that is set aside to remember those who gave their lives defending America and the freedoms that all citizens enjoy. A special service was held at Memorial Park Cemetery in Dalhart on Memorial Day, Monday May 28, to honor those who died while serving their nation in the armed forces.

The City of Dalhart began preparing for this special day at the beginning of May, asking families to remove decorations that are not permanently attached to monuments in the cemetery. The city then began a thorough cleanup of the cemetery so that it would be ready for Memorial Day.
