Pella’s American Legion Van Veen-Van Hemert Post 89 will be holding a program this weekend to remember veterans as part of Memorial Day weekend. The program is open to the public and will include an address from guest speaker, Brigadier General Janet Phipps. The program will be held Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. at the Pella Memorial Building on Broadway Street.

In addition to organizing Sunday’s program, the American Legion in Pella also placed small flags on the markers of veterans in each of Pella’s cemeteries, and lined the paved lanes with large American flags.
