In honor of fallen veterans here in the Sioux Empire, all the Sioux Falls Nyberg's Ace locations will again be giving away long stemmed roses this Memorial Day weekend. The roses are to be given to a veteran, or placed on the grave site of a veteran no long with us.

This is the fourth year Nyberg's has teamed with the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation. With the help of retailers, such as Nyberg's Ace, the foundation works to make sure that roses are placed on the graves of veterans as a way of saying, "Thank you."

Nyberg's Ace is actually one of 125 small town businesses across the country taking part in the program this year. Each of the four Nyberg's Ace locations will be given 250 roses. And then starting Saturday (May 27) the roses will be given away until they're gone.

In addition to the 1,000 roses being given away locally, the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation will place an additional 600 roses on the headstones of graves at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C..
