Memorial Day

- 3/28/2018

I am in the process of compiling our department’s annual Memorial Day Ceremonies list of events. Please Email me any information about Memorial Day/Weekend ceremonies and activities in your area. I will add this information to my list—which will be forwarded to the statewide media, New Mexico’s congressional delegation, and the Governor’s Office—and will also be placed on our website’s calendar.


Please include the following information in your response:



-time of event

-address of venue

-nature of event (i.e. parade/ceremony/concert/BBQ, etc.)

-sponsor of event (i.e. VFW/American Legion Chapter, city of Santa Fe, Elks Lodge, etc.)

-point of contact (POC)

-POC’s phone number and Email


Thank you very much for your assistance!
