WOODS CROSS — The city’s annual Memorial Day celebration will be Monday, May 26, beginning with a 5K run at 6:30 a.m. at city hall.
The celebration continues at 8 a.m. with the traditional flag raising ceremony and program, according to the city’s website. This year’s keynote speaker is Sen. Orrin Hatch. A pancake breakfast will be served at Hogan Park following the program. Cost of the breakfast is $1.
The Memorial Day celebration is the city’s main celebration of the year.
The morning also includes music by a men’s choir made up of Woods Cross residents or music provided by other local residents, bagpipe players and displays of emergency vehicles.
Last year, 800 runners and walkers participated in the 5K.
The public is invited to join in all the events.
In conjunction with the celebration, May 26 has also been declared Woods Cross City Day at the South Davis Recreation Center.
Woods Cross residents providing proof of residency (a driver’s license or utility bill) can use the facility that day at no cost, according to the city’s website.
“This is a great opportunity for those residents who have not been at the center to spend some time there at no cost to see what it has to offer,” said Woods Cross City Manager Gary Uresk.
