Milan American Legion observing Memorial Day May 26
The Milan American Legion will observe Memorial Day with speakers from the Rock Island Arsenal and the Milan National Guard Armory at 11 a.m., Monday, May 26.
The observance also will dedicate the raising of a pole to fly the flags of the Milan Legion’s appendant organizations, the American Legion Auxiliary, the Sons of the American Legion, and the American Legion Riders.
The flag pole was donated to the Milan Legion post by the Rock Island Board of Education. It was originally erected at Audubon School in Rock Island. That building was demolished last fall, and placing the pole on the front lawn of the Milan Legion will keep it within the school district.
The public is invited to the Memorial Day observance and to join post members and friends for a light lunch following the ceremonies.
