Port Washington will remember its war dead with a traditional parade and program on Memorial Day.

    The Monday, May 27, events sponsored by the Van Ells-Schanen American Legion Post 82 begin with a 10:30 a.m. parade through downtown.

    The parade will begin at the corner of Wisconsin Street and Grand Avenue, head east on Grand Avenue, north on Franklin Street and then follow Pier and Lake streets to Veterans Memorial Park.

    A program at the park will follow, featuring Jim Johnson, commander of the post and Ozaukee County undersheriff.

    Three 50 and 60-year members of the Van Ells-Schanen American Legion will be honored.

    The Badger Boys and Girls sponsored by the Legion post will also be introduced.

    The Port Washington High School and Thomas Jefferson Middle School bands will perform patriotic songs.

    To salute the dead, a wreath will be placed in the park and taps played. A rifle salute by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5373 will also be presented.

    Those attending are asked to honor fallen soldiers with silence during this portion of the event.

    Following the program, ice cream and soft drinks will be provided by the Legion to youngsters.
