KING CITY — King City VFW Post 6747 hosted a fast-paced Memorial Day barbecue on Monday.

More than 1,400 tickets were sold for the drive-thru event, with cars stopping by and picking up as many as 16 meals each, even an hour into the barbecue serving time.

Despite no local Memorial Day ceremony this year, the VFW also set up flags and a rack for wreaths at King City Cemetery. Stephanie Domingos took time to explain the meaning of the holiday as youth groups arrived that day to place wreaths.
