American Legion Post 36 will present a virtual ceremony, on the City of Des Plaines Cable Channel 24.
On Memorial Day, May 25, Des Plaines American Legion Post 36 will present a virtual ceremony honoring the men and women who died while serving our country in the U.S. military. The ceremony will be broadcast live at 11:00am on the City of Des Plaines Cable Channel 24. Due to COVID-19, the Park District and American Legion Post 36 decided for the safety of its residents we would not have a ceremony at the Memorial Pavilion. The Memorial Pavilion and picnic shelters are fenced off, walking paths are open and there are no gatherings permitted along the pathways. We thank the American Legion and Vietnam Veterans of America for being wonderful partners with the Park District.
