The Memorial Day rain didn’t hit until the afternoon, allowing Glencoe to hold its morning ceremony outdoors at Veterans Memorial Park rather than moving it indoors to the Takiff Center. 

The Monday, May 27 Memorial Day ceremony was held at the park site that was dedicated nearly a century ago to honor the Village’s fallen World War I soldiers.
