Volunteers added a little red, white, and blue to downtown West Bend’s Main Street in preparation for Monday’s Memorial Day Parade. The parade steps off at 9:30 a.m. on Monday from the corner of Oak Street and Main Street.
The parade will head north on Main Street, west on Hickory Street, south on Sixth Avenue and wrap up at Poplar Street.
The parade will wrap up at the Old Courthouse Square with a ceremony beginning at 11 a.m.
Student speakers this year are all West Bend East High School freshmen who participate in forensics.
The Preamble will be presented by Emily Frederick, the Gettysburg Address will be read by Justin Scherzer and the poem In Flanders Field will be read by Abby Godejohn.
Liz Kryst of West Bend, mother of Captain Kevin Kryst, will be the guest speaker.
