Memorial weekend is upon us, and just as many of you will enjoy the extra time off with special plans, we are happy to host some exciting events of our own.

On another note, the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center would like to take a moment to express our gratitude for all of the service men and women who dedicate their lives to our country every day. Memorial Day is about so much more than time off of work, picnics and camping trips. It is a time to reflect on the gift of freedom we have received, and to say a big “THANK YOU” to all of those who so deserve it. From our family to yours, have a safe and wonderful Memorial Weekend!
