The Lexington Cemetery and Lexington National Cemetery will honor military service members with a Memorial Day ceremony.

The public is invited to the event which will take place at 11:00 a.m. Monday and will include presentation of the Colors, playing of Taps, a ceremonial firing detail, and remarks by Mayor Jim Gray.

The Lexington National Cemetary became a final resting place for fallen soldiers during the Civil War. 

When the war ended, The Lexington Cemetery donated the lot where the Union dead were buried to the federal government which, along with the lot beside it, became The Lexington National Cemetery which now includes a section specifically for veterans.
