Memorial Day is a day set aside to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Artesia will be hosting a Memorial Day program Monday morning at 10 at Baish Veterans Park at City Hall. The program will feature special music for the occasion. The Artesia Fire Department Color Guard will be on hand. There will also be a special message and a time to honor our fallen heroes with flags on display in the park and the playing of taps. Residents are being asked to take a moment and pay respect to our fallen heroes.
