Memorial Day gathering

A Memorial Day observance will begin at 9 a.m. Monday, May 28, in the Molecular Biology auditorium. Staff and faculty who have died since May 2000 will be remembered. Farwell Brown, Ames historian, will speak, and survivors will be invited to make brief remarks. Following the ceremony, flowers will be placed on the graves of faculty and staff buried in the University Cemetery.

The ceremony is planned by members of the ISU Retirees Committee. The group currently is raising $20,000 to rebuild the brick pillars at the cemetery's entrance and purchase new gates and a plaque for the cemetery. For more information, contact Betty Licht, 4-3830.
