American Legion Posts 9 and 97 to Hold Memorial Day Ceremony


American Legion Posts 9 and 97 have announced that they will be holding a Memorial Day ceremony on Monday, May 29, 2023, at 7:00 a.m. at the Florence Cemetery, located south of town, west of Highway 79 on Salazar Street. The event will last approximately one hour and will include a rifle salute, the playing of Taps, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the National Anthem.

The American Legion Posts will provide flags to the public and encourage attendees to place them on the final resting locations of local veterans. In addition, attendees are encouraged to bring chairs for their comfort.

The purpose of the Memorial Day Ceremony is to honor all American Fallen Heroes for the price they paid in defending our freedom. Memorial Day is a day when the American Legion Family honors the more than 1 million men and women who have lost their lives defending America since the Revolutionary War. America owes its Fallen Heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom a debt of gratitude. Attending the ceremony is a way of showing that gratitude.

Family members of Fallen Heroes are especially encouraged to attend the Memorial Day Ceremony in remembrance of their loved ones. Veterans are also encouraged to attend in honor of their fellow service members. Veterans in attendance will be recognized collectively and thanked for their service.

The Memorial Day Ceremony is an important event for the community to come together and pay their respects to the brave men and women who have served our country. American Legion Posts 9 and 97 are proud to host this event and invite the public to join them in honoring our Fallen Heroes.
