Virtual Memorial Day Observation

Some of our favorite times as a community are the celebrations that bring us together, like our annual Memorial Day parade and ceremony at Village Hall. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be holding our usual Memorial Day observances this year. Instead, we’re bringing the ceremony online.

Tune in on the Village’s YouTube channel this Memorial Day weekend for messages from Commander Andy Haszlakiewicz of the American Legion Huerter Wilmette Post 46 and Wilmette President Bob Bielinski, as well as a ceremonial rifle salute by the Wilmette Police Honor Guard and the laying of the wreath at the Wilmette Soldiers Memorial.

Thank you to all who have helped make this virtual commemoration a reality, especially American Legion Huerter-Wilmette Post 46.
