Residents invited to attend Memorial Day Ceremony, Monday, May 28

Memorial-Day-Salute

The Village of Lombard is inviting residents, Veterans of the Armed Services, and local scouts to attend this year’s annual Memorial Day program, Monday, May 28 at 12 p.m.

The event will take place in the Sunken Garden at Common Park, located just east of the intersection Grace St. and Maple St. in Lombard.

Members of the Lombard Veterans of Foreign Wars Lilac Post #5815, the Lombard American Legion Memorial Post #391, Lombard Historical Society, local scouts, students of Glenbard East High School, and local residents will be participating in the program. This year’s ceremony will pay tribute to the 100th Anniversary of the end of WWI.

The program will include buglers from Glenbard East High School, and songs from Glenbard East Eastwind Vocal Ensemble, and the Glenbard East WAVE under the direction of Brandon Catt and Tara Cappelleti and Marissa McLean. Attendees and nearby residents are reminded that the program will include cannon fire, provided by Stanford’s Battery Civil War Cannon, as well as a controlled gun salute from the Lilac VFW Post 5815. There program will also include a wreath laying ceremony at the Lombard Memorial Marker, which contains the names of Lombard residents who served or were killed in the Civil War, the Spanish American War, World War I, World War II and Vietnam War. No Lombard residents are recorded as being killed in the Korean War.

The featured speaker of the day will be Dennis McNicholas, who will read a poetic selection pertaining to the end of WWI. McNicholas was drafted in the middle of his second year of law school in 1971 and served as a Military Policeman in the United States Army for two years serving stateside during Vietnam. During his service time, Mc Nicholas was proudly named the Soldier of the Quarter for the 45th Air Defense Brigade.

After the program is completed, all attendees are strongly encouraged to visit with veterans. The Lombard Historical Society will also be on site with historical items, weather depending. Refreshments will be provided by volunteers from the Lombard Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association.

Due to limited parking and seating, attendees are asked to walk to the program, if they are able, and to bring a lawn chair if possible.

In the event of severe weather, the Village’s Memorial Day Program will be held indoors in the Community Room at Lombard’s Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave, and updates will be posted at www.villageoflombard.org and on the Village’s Social Media pages. Contact Communications Coordinator Avis Meade at (630)620-5718 with questions or visit www.villageoflombard.org/memorialday for more information.
