Each year on Memorial Day, the St. Louis V.F.W. Post #3055 sponsors a parade through town. The parade includes a decorated bicycle contest, school bands, and a variety of other entrants. The Middle of the Mitten Association donates small flags that are handed out along the parade route. There is also a tribute to sailors lost at sea, a twenty-one gun salute and a Veterans service at the Veterans Hill section of Oak Grove Cemetery. This year the parade will be held on Monday, May 27, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. If you have any questions regarding the Memorial Day festivities, please contact Ted Townsend at (989) 681-2318, Walter Rolston at (989) 681-2075 or Ed Davidson at (989) 681-5862 for more information.
