Letters | Time to spruce up the Valley’s memorial

Last week, when I read that there would be a Memorial Day Service at the fairly new Snoqualmie Valley Veterans Memorial, I really thought the city of Snoqualmie would make certain this memorial, right across from city hall, would be cleaned up and weeded for this sacred service to honor our fallen local heroes.

But this morning, when I had the chance to drive by, I discovered the memorial was looking pretty rough with all kinds of weeds growing all over the place.

So based on the same, I have to ask, where’s the honor and dignity everyone said this new Veterans Memorial would give to our fallen local heroes?
