NO MEMORIAL DAY BREAKFAST Due to several unfortunate circumstances, it has been decided not to have our Annual Memorial Day Breakfast this year.
FIRING SQUAD MEMORIAL DAY HONORS
Again this Memorial Day we will be honoring all our fallen veterans at each cemetery with a Chaplain’s prayer, reading the names of all veterans, Firing Squad salute with the firing of three (3) volleys and taps played. We travel to 11 different cemeteries, plus Byron Town Hall ceremony and to Sterr park where we honor veterans lost at sea. All starts at 8:00 AM at St. Andrews in Leroy.
