As we plan for the upcoming long weekend and kicking off the beginning of summer, I invite you to take some time to join us on Monday, May 27 at 11:00 a.m.: we will be saluting our nation’s fallen during the Highland Park Memorial Day Ceremony. The memorial event will be held near the bandstand at Memorial Park, 405 Prospect Avenue (the park is just east of the Highland Park Public Library at the intersection of Laurel, Prospect and Linden Avenues).
Special guests joining us will be State Senator Julie Morrison, Former Mayor Daniel Pierce, Highland Park Military Liaison William Schur, members of American Legion Post #145, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #4737 and Jewish War Veterans Post #29. Music will be provided by the Highland Park High School band and refreshments are being donated by Sunset Foods.
We will meet rain or shine. Parking is available on the street around the park or at nearby public lots.
I hope you will join us as we remember the men and women who have died protecting the freedoms of our great nation.
