Iowa State employees, retirees and spouses who have died during the past year will be remembered at the university's annual Memorial Day ceremony on Monday, May 30. The ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. in the Reiman Ballroom at the ISU Alumni Center, 420 Beach Ave.

Rev. Emmanuel Dass, Calvary United Methodist Church, will give the invocation, and Collegiate Brass from Collegiate United Methodist Church will provide music. Family, friends and colleagues will have time during the ceremony to share memories of their loved ones.

Parking is available in Lots A2-3 on the east side of the Alumni Center.

The ceremony is planned by a subcommittee of the ISU Retirees Association. For more information, contact Jerilyn Logue, 4-3192 or
