To some it’s a holiday, time for picnics, family gatherings and fun. To some it’s a holiday weekend in Moffat County, Craig, in particular, called “Grand Old West Days” filled with all sorts of activities for residents and tourists alike. And to some, it’s a time of reflection and remembering what the Holiday is really all about. But in Maybell, the week before Memorial Day, is a time for activity of the work sort preparing for our Memorial Services.
