VFW Post 313 Quartermaster Lance Dickinson on Tuesday announced, “Since VFW Post 313 will not be able to have our traditional Memorial Day ceremony at Old Fort Niagara Cemetery this year, we would like those who are able to join us for a car drive-by remembrance at four local cemeteries.
“We will meet at the post on Monday, May 25, at 11 a.m., line up our vehicles and then drive to the Universal Cemetery, next to the First Presbyterian Church. Veterans will then get out of their vehicles and offer a salute in remembrance of our fallen comrades; we will then get back in our vehicles and drive to St. Bernard's Cemetery on Oak Street, offer a salute, then to Oakland Rural Cemetery, and end at Old Fort Niagara 1812 Cemetery with our final salute. At that point, we will disperse and head for home.
“There will not be any gathering after the event and no refreshments at the post for the safety of our members and community.
“I hope you can join us on this special day to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country.”
