VFW to host Memorial Day Service

Shelby County is getting ready to thank its veterans with an upcoming Memorial Day service. 

The VFW is putting on its yearly memorial service at Grove Hill Cemetery on Monday at 11 a.m. 

According to local VFW post commander Henry Jew, there has been a simple and respectful memorial ceremony at the cemetery for a long time.

“It’s a short ceremony,” Jew said. “Usually takes about a half hour or so, maybe a little longer.”
