Memorial Day

As part of the sesquicentennial celebration, the Sesquicentennial Planning Committee is observing Memorial Day (May 30, 2022) by conducting a special unity march and ceremony to honor the 110 Wilmette men and women who died while serving their country in time of war.

The Committee is urging representatives of all of Wilmette’s civic, service, governmental, religious, business, and other organizations/groups to participate in the unity march and attend the ceremony. Widespread participation will not only honor the service and supreme sacrifice made by our Wilmette heroes, but it will affirm that we are truly a community of citizens who not only live together but who care about one another.
