Celebrate the Memorial Day holiday with a parade and ceremony to honor servicemen and women who have died serving their country.

The event will begin at 10:45 a.m. Saturday, starting at Marathon Park, traveling up Stewart Avenue, turning onto River Drive and ending at the VFW, Burns Post 388, on River Drive.

The D.C. Everest marching band will perform in the parade and also play "Taps" at the VFW. Other featured groups will be the VFW, American Legion, Man of Honor, Vietnam Veterans, AM Vets and Disabled American Veterans, along with local boy scout troops.

A ceremony for all those soldiers who have past, will follow the parade. Honorary speaker will be state Sen. Jerry Petrowski, R-Marathon. The ladies auxillaries from the veterans groups will lay wreaths, with a prayer by Pastor Tim Vanden Langenberg. A tomb will be erected for the ceremony honoring deceased members of the military.
