2008 MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY
Monday, May 26, 2008 is Memorial Day.
This is the only day of the year that we as a Nation have set aside to honor the men & women that gave their lives for our Freedom. We must never forget the ultimate sacrifice made by them through out the history of our Nation. All too many of us have lost sight of the true meaning of this most important day. The men and women whose heroism we both celebrate and mourn must never be taken for granted. We must do everything we can to ensure that the generations that follow will fully appreciate the sacrifices that so many have made and the sorrow their families have had to endure so that the rest of us can live in relative peace and security.
The New Berlin Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau is proud to join the Hoeppner-Horn Bros. VFW Post 5716 & Highland Memorial Park Cemetery to make Memorial Day mean even more to the Citizens of New Berlin.
The ceremony will start at 11:00 a.m. with the VFW making their ritual march to the Veterans Memorial. Former VFW Post Commander Don Hermann will speak. Other guest
speakers will include Mayor Jack Chiovatero and State Senator Mary Lazich. This year State Representative Mark Gundrum is serving his Country in Iraq and for the first time may not be able to attend.
Members of the VFW Post will perform a rifle salute. Alderman Ted Wysocki has arranged for a Fly Over, weather permitting. New Berlin, Holy Apostles Boy Scout Troop 93 will help
direct traffic, hand out programs & flags for those who attend. There will be a balloon release with memorial tags. Ament Industrial Truck and Moorland Auto Repair will provide the flags. The event will end with a cannon shoot. The cannon supplied by Glen Porter of Highland Memorial Park Cemetery. The New Berlin Community Band will perform patriotic music during the ceremony.
