    and, on Monday:

    As a reminder, the community is invited to unite at the Veterans Freedom Park on May 27 for a remembrance ceremony from 2:30-3:30 p.m. The ceremony will feature speakers from the Town of Cary and local armed forces community support groups. Free parking (regular and handicap accessible) will be available at Cary Academy (1500 N. Harrison Ave.), which is located across the street from the Veterans Freedom Park. There will be a handicap accessible shuttle running from Cary Academy’s parking lot to the event at Veterans Freedom Park. There will also be a police provided crosswalk available to those who wish to walk from the parking lot instead of taking the shuttle.

    The Town will again offer toy soldiers that citizens can write a soldier’s name on and place in the memorial as a way to honor all of those who have served in the armed forces. These soldiers will be saved and placed in the monument every Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
