Would you like to honor our nation's service people by attending a flag ceremony?
Or see a parade with marching bands, floats and dancers?
There's a little of each this Memorial Day.
American Legion Post 134 is planning a parade as part of its annual celebration Sunday May 27 at 1:30 p.m., closing Dempster Street, between Austin and Ferris from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
