Memorial Day 2020, Honoring Our Heroes At Home

May 25, 2020

9:00 am MDT - 5:00 pm MDT

As we continue to learn to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on our daily lives, we’re finding that many of the large Memorial Day ceremonies we’re accustomed to have been canceled or scaled down.

So, you’re invited to join Blue Star Families of Utah and Operation Hero in honoring our fallen heroes this Memorial Day at home as we continue to follow social distancing measures across the state. Pledge to fly our nation’s flag, dress your home in patriotic decor, spend time together outside for a picnic, and have a day of remembrance for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.

If you live nearby to Station Park in Farmington (140 N W Union Ave, Farmington, UT 84025), please consider visiting the Operation Hero Display over Memorial Day Weekend. 270+ yard signs with information and photos of Utah’s fallen heroes since 9/11 will be placed outdoors throughout Station Park on Friday, May 22, and will be available for public display throughout the entire Memorial Day weekend. Please practice safe social distancing during your visit, and respect the space of others who will be honoring the fallen during this display.

Then, share your patriotic family photos with us on social media (tag Blue Star Families of Utah & Operation Hero and use the hashtag #UtahHonorsOurHeroes), and your family could win a Facebook Portal (a $179 value)!

Complete the form below to solidify your pledge to honor our heroes at home this Memorial Day! Together, we will see this through.

Register below to attend today! As soon as you do, we’ll activate your free Blue Star Families membership! The fun is just getting started as you’ll soon access a number of benefits⁠—from more event invites to innovative programs, discounts from our amazing partners and supporters, and a greater sense of connectedness and support along your journey.
