Vets Honored: Memorial Day 2012

Special thanks to the Maine West High School Marching Band, Des Plaines Park District, VFW Post 2992, American Legion Post 36, Steven Schaefer, and all in attendance for making this year's Memorial Day event a true celebration of our veterans. 


Celebrate Memorial Day 2011 - Monday

Beaches, hamburgers, slip-n-slides, and fishing poles are always great on Memorial Day Weekend, but don't forget to thank the vets who sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy.  

Consider celebrating with the DP VFW at the Lake Park Pavillion this Monday, May 30th at 11am. 

If you already booked that suite out of town, make a donation to the VFW
