JOIN US FOR MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONIES
Memorial Day, Monday, May 27 is a special day in our community, as we take time to honor and pay respects to those who are currently or have served in our nation’s military. While there are several ceremonies throughout our community, I would like to take a moment to highlight two special events that I think you would enjoy.
The Bayport American Legion sponsors a parade (starting at 8:30 AM) and ceremony (following the parade in the Bayport St. Michel Cemetery…approximately 9:00 AM). The program is about 45 minutes in length and features several speakers and musical guests. It is always extremely well attended. I would recommend arriving early and enjoying the prelude music.
The Stillwater American Legion sponsors a ceremony beginning at 11:15 AM at the Veterans Park across from the Historic Courthouse. This event is about 70 minutes in length and features speakers, musical guest and a dramatic fly over at noon. It is followed by an ice cream social. Again, I would recommend arriving early and enjoying the music, as this event is also well attended.
As always, the Stillwater Area High School Wind Symphony will perform as part of these community celebrations. I hope you all will take a bit of time out of your day to join us in honoring the men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces.
The Stillwater Jazz Combo Placed 2nd in the Class A-AA Combo division at the Eau Claire Jazz Festival this weekend! Congratulations to Ella Grace (trumpet), Peter Grace (tenor sax), Josh Zimmer (bass) and Michael May (drum set)!!!
