Last night a friend called to say that the Oak Hill Cemetery will have a Memorial Day ceremony to lay a wreath at the grave of Civil War soldier 2nd Lt. Lauren Barker. The gathering starts at 10:00 a.m. The cemetery is on Brookfield Road south of Capitol Drive on the East side of the road. It’s right next to Brookfield Academy, so it’s pretty easy to find.
Also next Monday is the Elm Grove Memorial Day parade scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Traditionally students from the high school bands march in this one since school is still in session. The youngest has already been assigned her spot in the formation for the Spartanettes routine.
Let us know below if there are other local celebrations planned.
