Pioneer & Military Memorial Park, Phoenix

Pioneer & Military Memorial Park, Phoenix

With any luck, you’re already well into planning—or enjoying—your Memorial Day weekend. On this Change of Venue Friday, I share a few events in Phoenix and Tucson that commemorate the service of those in the armed services.

First, in Tucson.

Memorial Day 2013 bouquetOn next Monday and the weekend before, both South Lawn and East Lawn Palms Cemeteries will hold events to recognize those who sacrificed for their country. Details vary, but each cemetery will include guest speakers delivering remarks. All the background is here.

And in Phoenix, the Pioneers’ Cemetery Association will be hosting that cemetery’s 30th annual Memorial Day observance. That event on Monday, May 27, will include remarks by Marshall Shore, the Hip Historian, among others.

More detail on the Phoenix event can be seen below.

Have a wonderful weekend.
