Easter Service At Mount Rushmore Will Go On



Bookmark and Share

Officials at Mount Rushmore National Memorial say they've found a way to enable an annual Easter sunrise service to be held as planned.
   
Superintendent Cheryl Schreier told service organizers earlier this week that automatic federal spending cuts that took effect this month would mean the memorial's visitor center and the elevators and bathrooms inside wouldn't be open for the 7 a.m. service that draws up to 2,000 people.
   
Memorial officials say they've come up with a way to allow limited access to the bathrooms and elevators that go to the memorial's lower-level amphitheater without opening the entire visitor center.
   
Two employees normally would be required to staff the center during the service, and they would be due overtime pay, which the memorial has eliminated.
