Emil Sheive American Legion Post 699 & Mayor Christopher Getty Host Annual Memorial Day Ceremony in Lyons 
Lyons Mayor Christopher Getty and officials of the Village of Lyons will join the American Legion to honor fallen members of the Armed Forces during their annual Memorial Day Ceremony. 
Hosted by the American Legion, the ceremony will take place Monday May 27th at 11:00 a.m. in front of the Eternal Flame Memorial Site 7826 Ogden Avenue in Lyons. 
"Once a year, we pause to remember those who have given their lives in conflict and those who have served to defend this great country. I'm proud to be able to participate in that commemoration of the service and the sacrifices of our veterans this Memorial Day," Getty said. 
"While it is just one day, and one weekend, it's one of the most important commemoration we can make. I hope the public will join us this holiday weekend to remember the great sacrifices and the courage that so many in our country have shown to defend this nation." 
The Memorial Day Commemoration Ceremony is a valued tradition in Lyons. Everyone is welcomed to attend.
