Elmhurst will once again honor and remember the courageous men and women who have sacrificed so much to serve in our nation’s armed forces.
The 96th annual Elmhurst Memorial day will be held on Monday, May 26. The parade steps off at 9:30 a.m. from the corner of York and Third, proceeds south to Church Street, and then west to the Veterans Memorial in Wilder Park.
The parade will be immediately followed by a special military ceremony with speakers, patriotic music and the laying of wreaths to honor members of the various branches.
