Memorial Day Events Happening Around North Texas Today

Posted on Donna Kee

Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day, is a time to commemorate men and women who died while serving in the military, as well as thank people who serve or have served in the nation’s armed forces.

The Carry the Load Memorial Day march began in 2011 in Dallas, and provides an active way to connect Americans to the sacrifices made daily by the military, veterans, first responders and their families. People are invited to attend Monday’s events at Reverchon Park beginning at 11:45 a.m. and continuing through 1:30 p.m. to walk and take part in the closing ceremony, a storyboard procession and other tributes.

Funds raised through Carry The Load assist with the many challenges facing our military, veterans, first responders and their families.
