NORTH OGDEN -- A North Ogden neighborhood will honor a fallen Marine next week.
Lance Cpl. Pedro Barboza died in Afghanistan last month while supporting combat operations. He was buried in California, but most of his family lives in Weber County.
A memorial service and tree planting in his honor will take place Monday, Aug. 10, at the Harrisville City Park. It's open to the public; see details below:
Memorial Service for Lance Cpl. Pedro Barboza
Date: Monday, Aug. 10
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: The Harrisville City Park (right on the Harrisville/North Ogden border, at 1350 W Hwy 89)
