Needles, California: As you all be aware, the Needles Riverview Cemetery’s Memorial Day 2021 Service was cancelled for Monday, May 31st, 2021.
According to the City of Needles, “Due to the uncertainty of future State restrictions on gatherings due to COVID-19, it is with regret that the Memorial Day Program held at the Needles Riverview Cemetery is again being canceled for 2021.”
Last year, a video tribute was posted on social media after California’s “Stay-At-Home” order was put into affect cancelling many events in Needles, California including the Memorial Day service.
This is very unfortunate and sad cancellation for this important event is cancelled again, even with California easing restrictions on events gatherings, and other communities in California still going on with their Memorial Day 2021 services but with smaller attendance cap and encouraging social distancing and mask wearing during the event.
As result of the disappointing cancellation, ZachNews has decided to rebroadcast the live broadcast of the Needles Riverview Cemetery’s Memorial Day 2019 Service that occurred on Monday, May 27th, 2019.
You can watch the Needles Riverview Cemetery’s Memorial Day 2019 Service at the following website:
ZachNews and the community hopes that the event remembering and honoring those who serve in our military, who gave their lives for us to live free, will return in 2022; please let our community remember and honor those who serve in our military who we have lost, those who are missing in action and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our lives to live in freedom.
ZachNews hopes today you give a moment to remember and honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our lives and our freedoms; Thank You and God Bless the United States of America.
