With the cancelation of this year’s Memorial Day Parade due to COVID-19, Mayor Harry Rilling and the American Legion encourage residents to pay tribute to fallen heroes at dusk (approximately 8:30 p.m.) on Monday, May 25, by lighting candles and placing them on front porches or leaving a light on in the window. As physical distancing measures limit the ability to perform traditional Memorial Day remembrances, such a display will help honor those who served.
