Why do we observe Memorial Day? On Friday, May 16th, Yuma Proving Grounds Museum Curator Bill Heidner will discuss the history of memorializing those who have given their lives for their country at 11:00 a.m. at the Main Library. Topics include the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day, and how other countries honor their fallen soldiers.

The Main Library is located at 2951 S 21st Drive. For more information, call (928) 782-1871.
