Memorial Day observances were conducted by Grand Mesa VFW Post #9221 and Ladies Auxiliary at Cedaredge, Eckert and Cory cemeteries on Monday.
Post Commander Gary Tollefson traced the history of the observance from its beginnings as a remembrance of those who lost their lives fighting in America’s Civil War.
Pastor John Copper noted in his remarks that the day commemorates “every single service person who has given their life” for the freedoms Americans enjoy. He estimated that number of war dead throughout the nation’s history at 1.5 million.
Fifty Cedaredge High School seniors ascended the graduation stage last Saturday at the school, and 50 new alumni from a high-achieving class of 2015 descended with diplomas in hand ready to take on new challenges in life.

Valedictorians Kristin Gardner and Ryan Latta issued inspiring calls to their classmates to step up and meet the coming challenges of a more unsheltered adult life.
Gardner said that “life’s challenges feed the flame” that is within each individual. She encouraged grads to “ignite your fire,” and not be afraid of the future that lies ahead.
