[ARCHIVED] Virtual Memorial Day Ceremony

Memorial Day is an important day for us as Americans to pause and remember the brave individuals who gave their life to protect the freedoms we enjoy today. While the current pandemic has kept us separated and canceled many events, the Village of Niles will gather virtually on Monday to observe Memorial Day with a traditional ceremony.

A pre-recorded Memorial Day Ceremony, led by Niles Memorial VFW Post 3579 and the Village of Niles, aired on Niles TV on Monday, May 25 at 11:00 A.M. Due to COVID-19, there will not be a public, in-person ceremony at the Niles Veterans Memorial Waterfall on Memorial Day this year.

Here’s how to watch a replay of the virtual Memorial Day ceremony:
