Starting at 8 am tomorrow, May 26th, the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Chapel Hill will host a morning service at the Chapel Hill Memorial Cemetery.

Attendees are also welcomed to participate in the Memorial Day Open House.

It is set to take place at American Legion, Post 6, located at 1714 Legion Road, and begins at 10 am.

The event will feature various displays and a memorial service. Bart’s Old North State Barbecue and Maple View Ice Cream will be available to all.

At 11 am, there will be a Memorial Day Ceremony, followed by a wreath-laying at the flag pole. A concert from the Chapel Hill Village Band will commence at 1 pm.

To close the event, there will be a National Moment of Silence at 3 pm.
