WELLINGTON — Glynn Moore Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6439 will host a Memorial Day Service at 10 a.m. Monday, May 31 at the veteran’s memorial on the Collingsworth County Courthouse Square.

On Memorial Day, those who have died in service to the United States of America are honored. Dedicated Nov. 11, 1989, the monument to Collingsworth County’s honored heroes recognizes local citizens who made the supreme sacrifice.

“Members of the local VFW and Auxiliary to the VFW will be assisted by Wellington Volunteer Fire Department to place the flags at the area cemeteries for Memorial Day weekend,” said Jr. Castillo, VFW quartermaster. “We will meet at Two Rivers Family Restaurant for breakfast at 7 a.m. Saturday, May 29.”
