2012 National Moment of Remembrance

Flags in Boulder City CemeteryFor the second time, Boulder City will pause for the National Moment of Remembrance tomorrow afternoon.  There will be the sounding of sirens for one minute at 3pm in downtown Boulder City, followed by the playing of “Taps”  – during which everyone is asked to stand at attention.

The event is to observe the National Moment of Remembrance that was established by Congress and signed into law by then President Bill Clinton in 2000.

Here’s something Fan Kimberlee Mayer Green posted about the event last year (and I confirmed with our peeps Patty Sullivan at Parks & Rec to confirm that this was all still correct for this year):

“American Legion Post 31 will hold a Memorial Day remembrance ceremony in Old Town Boulder City on Monday for Memorial Day. At 3pm, a siren will sound for one minute, followed by the playing of “Taps.” It is requested that everyone observe the moment of silence to honor all those who have died in service to our country. The police will be shutting down Nevada Highway at the Wyoming and Arizona St intersections, as well as Avenue D, for the event.”

Please encourage your friends and neighbors to participate in this inaugural city event by coming to downtown and participating Boulder City’s salute to the service men and women who have given their lives to fight for our freedom.  And hey — consider wearing your red Support the Troops shirt!
