Memorial Day service planned at Mount Hope Cemetery

A Memorial Day ceremony is planned for Monday, May 26 starting at 11 a.m. at Mount Hope Cemetery on South Bridge Street in Baker City.

Chaplain Jerry Shaw of VFW Post No. 3048 will give the opening prayer.

Dale Dodge of the American Legion will be master of ceremonies.

A lunch at the VFW Memorial Club, 2005 Valley Ave., will follow the ceremony.

On Saturday, May 24 starting at 8 a.m., small flags will be available for volunteers to place on veterans' graves.

Volunteers also are needed to set up the large flags along the Avenue of Flags prior to the Memorial Day service.

To help, call Doug Riggs at 541-519-7424. 

The city's maintenance contractor will be finished with its work at the cemetery by the end of Thursday. Residents can begin decorating graves then.

The cemetery gates will be open from 6 a.m. until dusk on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The cemetery office will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday to help people locate graves.

All flowers, plants and decorations that are deteriorated or that don't comply with the city's rules will be removed starting June 5.

People are encouraged to remove those items before then if they want to keep them. A copy of the cemetery rules is available on the city's website: www.bakercity.com.

More information is available by calling 541-524-2046 or 541-524-2063.
