The Village of Lombard’s is inviting residents, Veterans of the Armed Services, and local scouts to attend this year’s annual Memorial Day program, Monday, May 30 at Noon, at the Sunken Garden at Common Park, near St. Charles and Grace.
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 and Montini Catholic high schools as well as local residents will be participating in the program.
The featured speaker of the day will be a veteran of the armed military services. There will be 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.
Attendees are asked to walk to the program, if they are able, and to bring a lawn chair if they would like to sit. Following the ceremony the Lombard VFW Lilac Post #5815 will be posting the colors and completing a Rifle Salute at the Lombard Cemetery on Main Street.
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. Anyone with questions can contact Lombard Police Sergeant William Marks at (630) 873-4446.
