American Legion set for Memorial Day ceremony

Due to COVID-19 precautions, American Legion Post 89’s annual Memorial Day ceremony will be at 11 a.m. Monday in the parking lot outside the post annex, 402 W. Second St., Seymour.

Post Commander Gary Anderson said Tuesday that the move was made because of restrictions in place at Riverview Cemetery on the city’s north side.

Flags will be put on deceased veterans’ graves as usually done, and anyone interested in helping may meet at 9 a.m. Thursday at the cemetery.

Brownstown’s ceremony, which has typically been conducted at Fairview Cemetery on the Sunday afternoon before Memorial Day, has been canceled.

Officials with Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1083 in Crothersville will be placing flags on veterans’ graves at Crothersville, Uniontown and Cana cemeteries on Saturday, Post Commander Jon Tracy said.
