The Memorial Day Association has announced there will be no official program in East Bay Point Park in Red Wing on the morning of Memorial Day, May 31, in 2021. Providing a safe environment for all involved in the observance is their concern. They are hopeful they will be able to resume conducting a ceremony for the city of Red Wing in 2022. Their focus again this year will be on decorating our area veterans' graves with American flags, turning our cemeteries into a sea of red, white, and blue.
Those who would like to assist in helping decorate the veterans' graves in Oakwood Cemetery should meet at the cemetery flagpole at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 15.
