A three day weekend is at hand…..for many people its the start of the summer season and end of the school season. For our family and like many many other families its the local Memorial Day events that are so special. The Memorial Day Parade in La Crosse will begin at 9 a.m. Monday at Fifth and King Streets. The parade will go through downtown La Crosse to Oak Grove Cemetery for a 10:15 a.m. program that is always very moving and reflective. A naval reserve program will be 11:15 a.m. at Riverside Park.
