Town Hall and Facilities Closed on Memorial Day; Waste Collection on One-Day Delay
Garner Town Hall and other Town facilities will be closed on Monday, May 28, for Memorial Day. There will be no solid-waste collection on that day. Monday routes will receive collection on Tuesday, and other routes that week also are scheduled to receive service a day later than usual.
Garner's annual Memorial Day ceremony will be held at the Garner Veterans Memorial at Lake Benson Park (921 Buffaloe Road) on May 28 at 1:30 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs and to set up in a shady spot near the stage. Keynote speaker will be Wesley Bauguess, an Army veteran, author and military widow. Guided tours of the memorial will be conducted before the event and after its conclusion.
The observance is co-sponsored by the Garner Veterans Advisory Committee, American Legion Post 232 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10225.
