Here's a list of 2009 Memorial Day events in the Twin Cities. For some reason it doesn't mention this event in St. Louis Park:
Join the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion in honoring those who have served our country. The service begins at 11 a.m., and the flag will be raised at noon.
Monday, May 25, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Veterans' Memorial Amphitheater in Wolfe Park
3700 Monterey Drive
We have attended this particular event for the past several years and are always moved by the music, readings, and salutes to veterans. Such events help you (and your children) remember what Memorial Day is really all about. I'd encourage you to take a little time out of your day today to show up at one near you.
