Memorial Day Schedule of Services (American Legion)
Memorial Day activities – including a parade and multiple memorial services at area cemeteries and nursing homes – have been scheduled by the George A. Fitzgerald Post 65 of the American Legion in Dell Rapids, commanded by Mr. Dan DeVaney.
The parade will start at City Hall and is set to include the American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary colors, the Post 65 Firing Squad, and a variety of community organizational entries. It will disband at the corner of State Ave. and 4th Street, and the American Legion will continue to the City Park for the River Ceremony. Following the park service, the Legion will proceed to St. Mary’s Cemetery.
The last ceremonies of the day will be held at Orchard Hills and the Dells Nursing and Rehab Center.
In case of inclement weather, all ceremonies will be held at the Dell Rapids Public High School gym.
As normal, the American Legion of Dell Rapids will be holding a bratwurst feed at the Legion Hall on Orleans Ave beginning at 11 a.m. and continuing until 1 p.m.
