Red Wing Memorial Day Observance—Moved to Central Park
The program begins with an Invocation and ends with a Benediction and features musical interludes by Ovation and the Red Wing High School Concert Band. There will be Color Guards and a Flag Raising Ceremony, Honored Guests, Logan’s Proclamation, Gettysburg Address and Mayor’s Remarks.
Keynote Address will be given by USAF Lt. Col. Jennifer Aasland. In addition, names will be read of the veterans from Red Wing who have passed since last Memorial Day and honor them with a Floral Tribute, Rifle and Artillery Salutes and TAPS.
Citizens are invited to bring their lawn chairs (there is no seating) and join together at Central Park to see how the community of Red Wing honors its departed comrades and celebrates Memorial Day. Flags were placed on Veteran’s Graves on May 11 in all Red Wing cemeteries.
