Nation's war dead honored, remembered in Yorkville
By KENDALL COUNTY RECORD
A crowd of area residents, including many veterans and their families, gathered in Yorkville's Town Square Park late Monday morning, May 27 to honor our nation's war dead as the Yorkville American Legion's conducted its annual Memorial Day service.
The service included a reading of the Memorial Day Prayer by Legion Chaplain Bob Leonard, patriotic songs played by the Yorkville Middle School Band under the direction of Julie Hensel and Cassandra Gallagher, and a 21-gun salute by the Yorkville American Legion color guard and rifle squad.
Among those in attendance were veterans from Hines Veterans Hospital in west suburban Maywood.
