Door County will have plenty of opportunities for those people wishing to pay their respect to fallen soldiers this Memorial Day weekend. On Sunday, members of the local American Legion will perform ceremonies at the twenty-two different cemeteries dotting Southern Door County. On Monday, Sturgeon Bay, Sister Bay, and Washington Island will host ceremonies of their own featuring special musical performances and keynote speakers. Door County Veterans Service Officer Scott MacFarlane says Memorial Day marks one of the few times we can pay tribute to those that have passed away or were lost.
MacFarlane recommends bringing a chair if you plan on attending any of the ceremonies on Sunday and Monday as seating is limited.
