Memorial Day events to be held in area

The Durhamville (ANM) Veterans Club will hold its annual Memorial Day service beginning at 9 the World War I Monument at Triangle Park, corner of Church and Broad streets.

There will then be a watchfire at 8 the high school; worn American flags can be disposed there and prisoners of war and those missing in action will be honored. In the early afternoon, attention turns to the Memorial Day parade, organized by the local American Legion Post 49.

"The theme in itself is unique and this year's parade is also being dedicated to Larry Spellacy, who has been the chair of the committee, who passed away about three weeks ago and he was a Vietnam vet", said Sal Cucia, assistant director of the parks and recreation department.

Colman: The Memorial Day program in Colman will begin at 10:30 a.m.

The initiative grew at the requests of family members and participants. Services start at 9:45 the Catholic cemetery and will move to Union Cemetery at 10 a.m.

The parade will begin from the Ravenna Library, stopping at the Ravenna Courthouse lawn for a brief observance at the Veterans Memorial before ending at the Maple Grove Cemetery.

MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE, 10 to 11 a.m., The Fountains at Crystal Lake, 965 N. Brighton Circle West, Crystal Lake.

On Tuesday, May 30, the VFW and American Legion, in partnership with the Warwick Historical Society, will open an historical military exhibit at the A.W. Buckbee Center, located at 2 Colonial Warwick.

That often leaves the crowd sparse for the parade, as well as the ceremony that follows at the park. Boy Scout Troop 730 will assist in the ceremony and the honor guard will be provided by Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9010.

A service starts at 10 the veterans memorial in Lanark Cemetery, state Route 64 and Southeast Lanark Avenue, or at the high school if it rains.
