American Legion Post 522 will honor Veterans in a few special ways this month. The members begin by hosting the annual Memorial Day ceremony at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 30, at the Veteran’s Memorial at Shallowford Square.

The ceremony will include the Presentation of Colors by the Post Color Guard, a 21-gun salute by the Post Rifle Squad and the placing of the wreath at the Battle Cross and POW memorials.

Post 522 is also offering a meaningful way to remember and honor a veteran by selling engraved Memorial bricks. The bricks will be placed at the Battle Cross Memorial in Shallowford Square. Attendees will also be able to purchase these memorial bricks during the ceremony. The cost per brick is $150 payable by cash or check only and may be purchased to honor any living or deceased veteran. This offers a wonderful way to remember and honor a veteran.
