Members of Lee Marts Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #3571, Harry A. White American Legion Post #65, and their Auxiliaries, assisted by the Civil Air Patrol Delta County Cadet Squadron, presented Memorial Day ceremonies at Mesa View and Delta City Cemeteries. The ceremonies paid tribute to all deceased American veterans, concluding with the salute fired by a joint American Legion/VFW firing squad composed of Army, Navy, Marine, and Air Force gunners and echo taps played by the father and son team of Richard and Christopher Weldon.
The audiences at the ceremonies were a mix of veterans, veterans' families, and non-veterans, all silently honoring those veterans who have been laid to rest, not only in the Delta cemeteries, but in the "hallowed ground" where veterans rest anywhere in the world.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
