Mount Shasta Herald
People gather twice a year at the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden off of Highway 97: on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day to dedicate the names of honorably discharged veterans on the Hot LZ Wall. This photo was taken on Memorial Day, 2013.

Citing "the worsening conditions of COVID-19," the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden Board of Directors decided to cancel the Veterans Day Service at the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden this year. The annual event was scheduled for Nov. 11.

“People coming from all over the U.S. and beyond, including babes in arms and toddlers to the elderly would be at risk as this virus seems to grow when people gather together in groups of any size,” according to a press release from the LMSG board.

The LMSG is located on Highway 97 near Weed.

Names will be placed on the Memorial and Sponsor Walls and all names from  the Memorial Day service and this Veterans Day service, will be read and dedicated at the 2021 Memorial Day Service, according to the press release.
