[ARCHIVED] Memorial Day 2019: We celebrate, we honor, we remember

Stone markers commemorating veterans from Korea, Vietnam and World War Two

"We ask a lot of those who wear our uniform. We ask them to leave their loved ones, to travel great distances, to risk injury, even to be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. They are dedicated. They are honorable. They represent the best of our country, and we are grateful." —George W. Bush

River Grove residents, families and friends are invited to join the veterans of American Legion Post 335 and VFW Post 5979 as we pay tribute to all American soldiers who gave their lives for their country, its independence and our better future. 

Schedule of Events for Monday, May 27, 2019

  • Beginning at 7am, we will honor our fallen heroes by placing flags at St. Joseph Cemetery (3100 Thatcher Avenue). 
  • At 11am, we will honor our flag with songs, speeches and prayers at the American Legion Post (8664 Grand Avenue).
  • Starting at 12pm, there will be a Veterans Car Show at the American Legion Post featuring a food truck, raffles, trophies and more.

Let us never forget that our local heroes will never truly die. They will live on forever in our memories.
