Don Hayden, a Vietnam veteran and member of LeCenter American Legion Post 108, will give the Memorial Address. A highlight of the day’s observance is the placing of wreaths in honor of people who have served in conflicts from the Revolutionary War to Operation Enduring Freedom. VFW Commander Tom Simota will read the Last Roll Call, a list of veterans who have died during the past year.

This year’s event chairs, Ray Osmun and Laurie Fleming invite everyone to attend this community celebration in the beautiful Memorial Park on South Highway 3.
