While the long spring holiday is a great day to goof off, Spring Canyon Park held events that put more of the ‘Memorial’ in Memorial Day. The Veterans Plaza of Northern Colorado was recently dedicated and is designed to honor men and women of the military who are from or have ties to Northern Colorado. The City of Fort Collins website explains how any veteran, living or deceased that is from or has ties to Northern Colorado, can have their name listed at the Plaza.

Any veteran, living or deceased, and any active duty service man or woman can have their name listed at the Plaza at no charge. The only stipulation is that they must have some tie to Northern Colorado, directly or through family, and proof on honorable service be provided. The Plaza will honor as many veterans and active duty service people as possible. Nomination forms can be found at Veterans Plaza of Northern Coloardo and the status of submitted nominations can be found there as well.

A Blackhawk helicopter came from Denver’s Buckley Air Force Base and there were living tributes at Spring Canyon Park yesterday.
