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

The American Legion Post 522 is 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 Memorial Day 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.
