Memorial Day Parade 2023

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.   If so, then the 500+ Memorial Day photos speak volumes – about Arlington Heights, our veterans, residents, schools, churches, businesses, donors, organizations, Village, Park District, Library – everyone who participated and/or supported.  All these as well as the 2023 Honor Veterans List are shown on page 3 of the 2023 Memorial Day Ceremony Program found in the Documents folder.

Our deepest thanks to Lorelle Communications who videotaped the Memorial Day Ceremony.

You can view the 2023 Memorial Day Ceremony video on YouTube at  https://youtu.be/QFXKRkY5Lys     

This video includes a very moving Memorial Day Request from Gold Star Wife, Katie Stack, whose husband, LCPL James Stack, USMC, was killed in action on November 10, 2010, Afghanistan.  Katie’s “Gold Star Wife’s Request for Memorial Day” starts at ~19:30 minutes in the video. 

Also, this video is now airing on the Village of Arlington Heights cable TV channels (COMCAST 17, WOW 7; UVERSE 99).

Thank you to everyone for keeping our Fallen Heroes and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
