Sunday memo: Monday holiday . . . What’s closed . . . Free stuff

weather

Honoring veterans: Monday is Veterans Day, but some started honoring those who have served in the nation’s armed forces earlier this weekend. Auburn held a parade on Saturday, and the New Beginnings Christian Fellowship, 19300 108th Avenue SE, Renton, is  celebrating its member veterans Sunday at both services.

What’s closed: Veterans Day is an official United States holiday, which means that on Monday post offices and government offices will be closed. Most banks and credit unions will also be closed, but garbage, food and yard waste collection are on regular schedules in Seattle and Bellevue. Metro bus service will be on a reduced schedule.

What’s free: There’s no charge for street parking Monday in Seattle, and the National Parks have been free to everyone all weekend, as they will be on Monday. That’s to honor veterans, but the free entry is for everyone. Just more more small reason to thank a vet.

If you go: If you decide to take advantage of the free National Parks today, you can expect morning rain and perhaps snow in the mountains. Temperatures in the passes will be in the mid-30s to low 40s. If you stay around Puget Sound, expect morning rain with cloudy skies, highs in the low 50s.
