MEMORIAL DAY

Medal of Honor Recipient Allen Lynch

to speak at MP Memorial Day Ceremony

Memorial Day, 30 May 2022 

Hosts of the annual Mt Prospect Memorial Day ceremony proudly welcome Medal of Honor recipient Allen J. Lynch as the keynote speaker.  The ceremony, which is hosted by VFW post 1337 and American Legion post 525, will begin at the Lions Park Veterans Memorial Band Shell after the conclusion of the Memorial Day parade. The parade kicks off at 0925 AM and proceeds south from the Mt Prospect Village hall on Emerson to Lions Veterans Memorial Park.  Included in the parade are many organizations i.e Boy Scouts, Lions Club, Cub Scouts, Fire Department trucks and including the Prospect High School Marching Knights band. As is customary, the ceremony at the park will include a 21 gun rifle salute, reading of the winning paper of the essay contest (Theme - What the Congressional Medal of Honor means to me), and patriotic songs presented by the Mount Prospect Community Band and the Prospect Marching Knights band. The normal Memorial Day attendance at Lions Park is expected to double for this year’s ceremony because the wonderful patriotic citizens of the village of Mt Prospect will properly welcome Medal of Honor recipient Allen Lynch.
