Memorial Day Ceremony

On Monday, May 28, the City of Rio Rancho will recognize Memorial Day with a remembrance ceremony honoring the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in military service to their country. The ceremony will take place at the Veterans Monument Park, and will begin at 11 a.m. Speakers will include Mayor of Rio Rancho Greggory D. Hull and military personnel.

Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a dedication of the Metro Area First Responders Monument. The monument is located inside the Veterans Memorial Park and includes four black granite panels surrounding the foundation to create a monolith engraved with the badges of nearly 30 agencies. The monument was recently completed as part of a Leadership Sandoval County project, and was coordinated and sponsored by a number of community leaders, businesses, and organizations. Leadership Sandoval County is a program of the Rio Rancho Regional Chamber.

For questions about the ceremony, please call the Rio Rancho Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department at (505) 891-5015.
