Cary, NC – In observance of Memorial Day, Cary Town Hall and most staffed facilities, including community centers, Stevens Nature Center and Cary Senior Center, will close May 27. The Cary Tennis Park, Sk8 Cary and Bond Park Boathouse will remain open for holiday enjoyment; citizens should visit the website for specific operating hours or call the facility in advance of visiting. GoCary fixed routes will be operating on a Sunday level schedule from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Tier I service only for Door-to-Door.

Curbside trash, recycling and yard waste collection for this week moves one day later. The Citizen’s Convenience Center will be closed on May 27. Cary citizens firing up the grill or deep fryer are reminded to do so safely; properly dispose of any cooking fats, oils and grease by taking advantage of the residential waste cooking oil curbside recycling program. Simply place cooled, used cooking oil and grease in a plastic screw-top food container. Once at least a half-gallon (approximately one, 2-liter soda bottle) is collected, properly label the container “Used Cooking Oil,” and call us at (919) 469-4090 or visit services.townofcary.org to schedule a free curbside pickup.

As a reminder, the community is invited to unite at the Veterans Freedom Park on May 27 for a remembrance ceremony from 2:30-3:30 p.m. The ceremony will feature speakers from the Town of Cary and local armed forces community support groups. Free parking (regular and handicap accessible) will be available at Cary Academy (1500 N. Harrison Ave.), which is located across the street from the Veterans Freedom Park. There will be a handicap accessible shuttle running from Cary Academy's parking lot to the event at Veterans Freedom Park. There will also be a police provided crosswalk available to those who wish to walk from the parking lot instead of taking the shuttle.

The Town will again offer toy soldiers that citizens can write a soldier's name on and place in the memorial as a way to honor all of those who have served in the armed forces. These soldiers will be saved and placed in the monument every Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
