Craparotta describes some of the foundational traits of good leadership. He explains that it ultimately comes down to people. Memorial Day is not about furniture sales and bar-b-ques. It’s about remembering. Vietnam era Marine Veteran Paula Sarlls invites us to the Memorial Day ceremony at the Marine Memorial located at 6th and Colfax in Golden.
