Memorial Day 2020 Drive-Through Tribute Planned at Bluff City Cemetery

Monday, May 25, 2020

While the regular public Memorial Day programs were cancelled this year, the Elgin Patriotic Memorial Association with cooperation of the City of Elgin are providing an opportunity for citizens to pay tribute to the real meaning of the day.  From 11:00 a.m. until early afternoon on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, there will be a variety of wreaths and floral tributes on display at the base of the large Civil War Memorial in the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) section at Bluff City Cemetery.   Visitors to Bluff City Cemetery are asked to follow a marked route in their vehicles which will take them by the memorial. No exiting of the cars will be permitted. Programs normally scheduled for the Elgin Veterans Memorial Park, Mount Hope Cemetery, and Lakewood Memorial Park will not be held this year.
