The service will start at 11:00 a.m. PT at Needles Riverview Cemetery, located at 1101 East Broadway (U.S. Route 95) just south of Interstate 40.

As like in past years, Natalie Johnson of Fat Cat in the Hat DJ will be coordinating the observances which will have music, messages, and readings of the lists of names of all of the man and woman who serviced and given their lives in our military as well as the man and woman who protect and save lives in our law enforcement and in our fire department.

After the service, all flags and crosses will be removed from the gravesites at 4:00 p.m. PT Monday evening, and the community can help in decoration of and removal from the cemetery grounds would be appreciated.
