Honoring our veterans in Roosevelt Park

To mark this year’s Veterans Day remembrances, Minot Park District will host a flag raising ceremony at the North Dakota Medal of Honor Memorial in Roosevelt Park, Monday at 4 p.m.

The color guard from American Legion Post 26 will conduct the raising at the memorial and a number of official personages are slated to attend, including Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, Rep. Kevin Cramer, Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley, and representatives of the City of Minot.

Dedicated in 2007, this will be the first function to be held at the memorial site since its cleaning and rewiring work was completed, repairing the damage done by the 2011 Souris River flood.
