HANCOCK COUNTY — Memorial Day is a national holiday created to honor the country’s war dead, and organizers of two local events are hoping to rekindle appreciation, remembrance and patriotism with ceremonies on Monday.
VFW posts, American Legion posts and their respective auxiliaries will begin their Memorial Day events at 11 a.m. in Park Cemetery in Greenfield, with speakers, laying of wreaths and more. At the same time at Gravel Lawn Cemetery in Fortville, veterans will lead a short ceremony as well.
