Celebrate Memorial Day

Celebrate Memorial Day
Legion Post plans annual commemorations.

For many, Memorial Day marks the end of the school year or the beginning of summer. But for veterans, their families and a host of others, the day stands as a time-honored tradition to commemorate the bravery and sacrifice of fallen service members and their families alike.

Wayzata’s chapter of the American Legion Post 118 once more plans to hold Memorial Day commemorations on May 30. The post’s Color Guard will pay tribute to our country’s fallen service members with events at 10:30 a.m. at Summit Hill Cemetery on Old Highway 12 and Wayzata Boulevard and 11:30 a.m. at Heritage Park cemetery on Wayzata Boulevard and Central Avenue.

Wayzata Mayor Johanna Mouton is scheduled to give her annual memorial speech at both events, followed by time to talk with attendees and a small free lunch with those in attendance.

Donations for the American Legion post are encouraged but not required for this event.
