Sentinel staff report–
The local American Legion post is slated to hold a Memorial Day service at Sylvan Cemetery on Monday, May 30.

According to an announcement from the city, veterans will assemble for a procession through the cemetery at 10:30 a.m., with a ceremony following at the cemetery’s gazebo at 11 a.m. The Folsom Harmony Express choir will be part of the event.

Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day, traces its history back to 1868 where it commemorated soldiers who died during the Civil War.

According to Sylvan Cemetery spokesman Jim Monteton, the original day was a time to decorate the graves of the fallen, and the end of May “seemed to be appropriate since many spring flowers are available.” Memorial Day was later extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars.

Sylvan Cemetery is located at 7401 Auburn Blvd. A Memorial Day concert will be held at 1 p.m. the same day at the Veterans Community Center, located at 6921 Sylvan Rd.
