The City of West Allis will host a Memorial Day Observance Ceremony on Monday, May 31 at 11 a.m. at Veterans Memorial Park at 70th and National Avenue. Speakers, including Mayor Dan Devine, will be joined by choral students from the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District, who will perform “God Bless America” and the National Anthem. Miss West Allis will also be in attendance.
For the safety of guests, masks or face coverings are strongly recommended. Socially distanced seating and hand sanitizer stations will be provided.
After consulting with Tanner Paull American Legion Post 120, the Memorial Day Parade presented too many logistical challenges, and will not be held this year. Many of the organizations and performing groups have not been rehearsing in person. The City of West Allis is optimistic about hosting its Independence Day Parade on July 2 and fireworks on July 4 and is proceeding with planning these events with the safety of the public in mind.
