May 30th Commemoration

WATERLOO REMEMBERS SOLDIERS’ SACRIFICES IN 150th ANNUAL MEMORIAL DAY COMMEMORATION

Following the weekend of celebration, the Birthplace of Memorial Day pauses to remember the sacrifices of those who paid the ultimate price for freedom. The 148th solemn remembrance of Memorial Day in Waterloo will be observed on Saturday May 30. The American Legion will conduct the remembrance events. Memorial Day is always commemorated on May 30 in Waterloo, in keeping with Gen. John A. Logan’s Orders. The public is invited to gather at 8:30 a.m. in St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Cemetery on Stark Street for a full military service. At 10:30 a.m. marchers will leave the VFW at 29 West Elisha St. to go to Maple Grove Cemetery on Stark Street for military services at 11 a.m. The solemn remembrance will continue at 6 p.m. when the military parade steps off from Main and Clark streets, proceeding down Main Street to Lafayette Park where several veterans organizations will participate in the laying of the wreaths at the veterans monuments in the park. The program will include the recitation of the Gettysburg Address and Logan’s Orders by students from Waterloo High School, the playing of the National Anthem by the high school band, and the Salute to the Dead by the VFW firing squad and the playing of Taps.
