Colfax Memorial Day activities canceled

COLFAX — Memorial Day activities for the Russell-Toycen American Legion Post 131 of Colfax have been canceled for this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under normal circumstances, American Legion members would meet at Colfax High School and then travel to Sand Creek for Memorial Day ceremonies.

After the Sand Creek activities concluded, American Legion members would return to Colfax where they would participate in a parade from Colfax High School to Colfax Evergreen Cemetery, where a Memorial Day service would be held.

Under the circumstances, because of the Safer at Home order, large groups cannot meet, so the American Legion has canceled all activities for Memorial Day, said Russell-Toycen American Legion Post 131 Commander Christopher Larson.

“We hope to see you all there next year,” he said.
