This weekend is a long one for most working folks – to many, Memorial Day weekend signals the beginning of summer, great sales, or just an extra day off. However, the holiday is meant to be a day of remembrance for the men and women who died while serving in the United States military. This year, please have fun during your long weekend, but take a moment of silence to remember the sacrifices brave men and women make every day while serving in the military.
Community members are invited to attend the
memorial service in Moscow at 9:00 a.m. with Pastor Sean Schraeder
from the Moscow Baptist Church. The service will take place in the Moscow Cemetery.
Hugoton residents may attend the 10:00 a.m. service at the Hugoton Cemetery
with Pastor Israel Franco of Hugoton’s Church of God.
Several area businesses will also be closed in recognition of the holiday. Citizens State Bank, First National Bank and The Hermes will be closed for the holiday, as will the Stevens County Courthouse. The City Offices and Post Offices in Hugoton, Moscow and Rolla will all be closed and plan to reopen Tuesday with regular hours. If you’ve got a honey-do list for the long weekend, you probably need to check off your list at Hi-Plains Lumber because they’ll be closed Monday, May 29.
Thrifty King announced they’ll be open for all your grocery needs, and Dollar General will also be open for all the outdoor essentials to get a great start to summer. Flatlanders plans to open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday, while the Store in Moscow will be open regular hours.
