SPIRE staff prep Memorial Gardens for summer season

FALCON HEIGHTS, MN (June 5, 2016) — A group of SPIRE employees recently volunteered their time to prepare the Veterans’ Memorial Garden in Oakwood Cemetery for the Memorial Day service. They weeded and removed debris, making sure the plants have plenty of room for this year’s growing season. A fresh layer of mulch was also spread, adding to the garden’s beautification and protecting the health of the plants.

The Veterans’ Memorial Garden was developed in 2010 by a group of volunteers from the Mora American Legion Club, and is dedicated to all those who have served in the United States Navy, Army, Air Force, Marine Corp, Merchant Marines and Coast Guard. Each year, a Memorial Day service is held at these special gardens to honor and remember those who have served to protect our freedom.
