Annual American Legion Memorial Day meal cancelled

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Each year American Legion Post 23 holds a Memorial Day service to honor veterans who died in service to our country.

Under normal circumstances, this service would take place at American Legion Post 23. Due to Covid-19 and the restriction on large crowds, the luncheon is cancelled this year.

Instead, there will be a small get together at Cone Funeral Home at 10:30 a.m. Monday, he said.

Malcolm Cherry, the commander of American Legion Post 23 , said that even though the annual service was cancelled this year, Memorial Day is still an important day to honor veterans.

Sheriff Brett Hightower is set to speak at the Cone Funeral Home service.
