Memorial Day Ceremony Includes Mural Dedication

Ruddy, with his family, last fall.

The South Milwaukee Veterans Council’s Memorial Day program is set for Monday, May 27, at the War Memorial.​

Veterans will be marching from the American Legion Van Eimeren-Kolonka Post 27 on 10th and Monroe to the memorial starting around 10:30 a.m. The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. 

This year, the ceremony will include dedication of the beautiful mural painted by artist Ruddy Cancel on Tony G’s Grant Park Garage. As you may recall, Ruddy passed away last year, shortly after completing the artwork.

Lunch will be served at the post following the ceremony; there will be a collection taken up to support the Cancel family at the event.

South Milwaukee’s War Memorial is located on North Chicago Avenue south of the entrance to Grant Park.
