Like many communities, Yorkville will not be holding their public Memorial Day Ceremony at Town Square this year, because of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Yorkville American Legion Post #489 will be hosting a private ceremony honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The private ceremony can be viewed live on Monday, May 25 at 10:00 a.m. on the Yorkville American Legion Facebook Page.

The City of Yorkville posted about the changes on Wednesday and also said that residents are invited to participate in a Memorial Day Contactless BBQ Pop-Up on Monday with all proceeds benefiting the Yorkville American Legion Post.
