Programs to be held in NYM, Deer Creek

By Chad Koenen


Memorial Day weekend isn’t just a time for people to fire up the grill and head to the lake for the first time—it is an opportunity to pay respect to individuals and their families who paid the ultimate sacrifice defending the country.

Two Memorial Day programs are being planned in the New York Mills and Deer Creek area on Monday morning.

The first program will be held at New York Mills School beginning at 10 a.m. The featured speaker will be Jerry Anderson. 

The NY Mills VFW Auxiliary is asking those to attend to bring an item for the food shelf.

The second program will be held at the Deer Creek Community Center. 

The day will begin with a breakfast including everything from French toast, pancakes, egg bake and more from 7:30-10 a.m. The breakfast will be followed by the annual Memorial Day program at the Deer Creek Community Center beginning at 10:30 a.m. 

The program will include music by the Wadena Community Band, readings and 9th District Vice Commander Steve NaSalle will be the featured speaker.
