After being rained out on Saturday, May 20th, the dedication ceremony of the new Veteran’s Memorial at the Edinburg Cemetery has been rescheduled for this Sunday at 2 p.m., and the public is invited to attend. The event will feature a speaker from the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight, along with a benediction, invocation, and a presentation of the colors during the ceremony.
Edinburg Cemetery Association Secretary / Treasurer Sandy Sample says donations to the Honor Flight program will be accepted at the dedication. She asks that checks be made out to Land of Lincoln Honor Flight and that you write “Edinburg Cemetery” in the memo line.
