Happy Memorial Day, Lone Tree

As we gather with family and friends to honor and remember the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our great nation, let us also embrace the opportunity to begin our summer season with unity, joy, and celebration.

Memorial Day holds a special place in our hearts as a day of remembrance, gratitude, and reflection. It is a time when we pay homage to those valiant individuals who answered the call of duty, leaving behind the comforts of home and family, and placing themselves in harm’s way to protect the freedoms and values we hold dear. Their selflessness and unwavering commitment to defending our nation’s ideals deserve our utmost respect and honor. I encourage each of you to take a moment this Memorial Day to pause, remember, and honor the heroes who have shaped our country’s history.

Kickoff Summer with Backyard Beats

Lastly, I hope you and your family will consider joining us in our annual kick-off to the Summer: Backyard Beats at Sweetwater Park. This free concert is always a treat and a great excuse to come together as a community for some great fun. This year, our headline artist is Lone Tree Arts Center’s own Mary Louise Lee and her band, who will be performing hits from legendary artists like Whitney Houston, Beyonce, and the late great Tina Turner.

The fun starts at 6:00 p.m.!Once again, thank you for making Lone Tree a great community to live, work, and play. I am, honored to serve as your Mayor and am looking forward to spending some time together this Summer!
