Mayor’s Message – Memorial Day

With Memorial Day approaching on Monday, May 26, we encourage everyone to take some time to honor those soldiers that have fallen for all of us.  Be it a moment of silence at 3 pm on May 26th, attending a parade, decorating a gravestone, or spending time with family and friends at a picnic, this is a day to show our appreciation for their ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedoms.  Sincere appreciation is extended to the Canton Veterans of Foreign Wars for sponsoring and coordinating the parade at 10 a.m. followed by a ceremony in the village park.  The history of Memorial Day can be found on the following link:
