Veterans groups will come together around noon Sunday for a joint Memorial Day service in City Hall Park. The annual tribute to men and women who gave their lives in defense of our nation will follow visits to local cemeteries by American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars members.

Cannelton American Legion members will visit several cemeteries Monday and will conclude their tributes with ceremonies in Cannelton's Gazebo Park at 11:55 a.m. and in Hargis Hafele Park at 12:05 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend local tributes to veterans this weekend.

Perry County's Avenue of Flags, a display of white crosses carrying the names of Perry Countians who gave their lives in action, will be on display in City Hall Park during the weekend.
