Groundskeepers Prepare for Memorial Day

Memorial DayASHLAND, Ore. — Groundskeepers are trying to get Southern Oregon cemeteries into top shape for Memorial Day. Mountain View Cemetery in Ashland sees dozens of visitors this time of year. The city staffs the property’s office on the holiday to help families find their loved ones. It also provides flags to place on grave sites for visitors.

That cemetery is just one of many in the area getting ready to help visitors on that day.

On Monday, there will be a fallen heroes war memorial commemoration at 9 a.m. at Don Jones Park in Central Point. And a service will be held at the Eagle Point National Cemetery at 11 a.m. as well. Representative Greg Walden will appear at both events.
