American Legion George A. Fitzgerald Post 65 will be honoring all veterans and their loved ones with a Veterans Day memorial service on Wednesday afternoon November 11, 2020 @ 3:00 pm at the Veterans Memorial Park in Dell Rapids. Guest Speaker for the occasion will be Father Shane Stevens, Pastor of St. Mary Catholic Church in Dell Rapids. Patriotic music will be played before the service begins and the Legion Post 65 Firing Squad will be on hand to post our nation’s colors.
Parking for the service will be available at the following locations:
- At the Dells Auto Lot west of the Dairy Queen;
- On the west side of Old Hwy 77 near the Subway strip mall;
- On the north side of SD Hwy 115 across from the fire station.
Parking will not be allowed at the fire station parking lot due to the possibility of a fire, rescue, or ambulance call. However, attendees to the Veterans Day Observance will be allowed to stand in the parking lot at the fire station for the service. In case of inclement weather, the service will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church. Due to a recent spike in CO-VID 19 cases in South Dakota, all attendees are asked to wear masks and observe social distancing protocols.
Legion Post 65 cordially invites all citizens in the local area to attend the service and appreciates everyone’s cooperation in this event.
