Park City vets plan poignant Memorial Day ceremony
The Park City post of the American Legion plans to hold a Memorial Day ceremony on Monday to mark the national holiday.
The ceremony is scheduled at 9 a.m. at the Park City Cemetery on Kearns Boulevard, the site of many previous Memorial Day gatherings. The event is expected to feature remarks by Dick Gallagher, who is a retired Navy vice admiral, as well as a lineup of others, including Brian Seay, who is the commander of the post, and Glenn Wright, a Summit County Councilor who has long been involved in the American Legion.
The event typically includes solemn words about the nation’s fallen soldiers, a flag ceremony and the playing of taps. Past ceremonies have drawn crowds of varying sizes with veterans, families of fallen soldiers and political leaders attending.

A group of people that appeared to largely represent Park City’s development and real estate industries joined family members of the late United Park City Mines President Hank Rothwell on Wednesday as a road was named in his honor. It was a tribute to a key figure in the great growth battles of the 1990s.
