Draper held its second annual Memorial Day event at the city’s cemetery. Graves were decorated with flowers and flags and Mayor Troy Walker spoke. “We love having a cemetery in the center of town. We honor all of our loved ones and those who’ve passed on. We have an amazing country and it’s all on the backs of those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice,” he said. Walker indicated that the city is looking at a 10-acre parcel of property for a second city cemetery, but that the voters will get to decide if they want it. Kelsey White brought her daughter Claire to the cemetery, knowing the little girl would enjoy seeing the colorful flowers and decorations. (Mimi Darley Dutton/City Journals) λ
