Crystal Volunteers Invite Public to “Taps Across America Day” on Memorial Day
Carla Herling and Jenny Partin-Olson are organizing a community playing of taps in Forest Park’s sledding hill in Crystal near 48th and Jersey Avenues North at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day.
Anyone is welcome to attend. You can even bring your instrument to play along as part of “Taps Across America.”
Partin-Olson is a band teacher in the Anoka-Hennepin School District. She organized the event last year, and Herling brought an instrument to play too.
The group will play taps followed by patriotic songs like “America the Beautiful.”
