INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Crown Hill Cemetery will observe Memorial Day in a special ceremony on Monday.

The Department of Veterans Affairs is hosting the ceremony in Indianapolis, and will host similar services at 130 national cemeteries over the Memorial Day Weekend.

Monday’s ceremony starts at 11 a.m. at the Crown Hill Columbarium Annex, 725 West 42nd St. That’s off 42nd Street and the Shelton Auditorium. A National Moment of Remembrance was set to take place at 3 p.m.
