Memorial Day is a special occasion in which we commemorate our fallen veterans. Each year, many of us look forward to the traditions of the parade, remembrance ceremony, and the community picnic. This year, Lisle will be observing Memorial Day in a safe and unique way while respecting and honoring those who have fallen. On Monday, May 25th, a convoy of vehicles with representatives from the Village of Lisle, Lisle-Woodridge Fire District, and the Lisle VFW Ross Bishop, Post 5696, will join in a silent convoy through Lisle. All participants will remain in their vehicles throughout the duration of the event.
The convoy will kick off at 10:00 a.m. at Kennedy Junior High School and make its way north through the Village, finishing along Warrenville Road near the Sheraton Hotel. View the Route Map. Individuals are encouraged to show their support by selecting a safe viewing location and adhering to social distancing and other safety guidelines. There will be no distribution of candy, flags or other items during the convoy. Spectators are encouraged to take a walk to the route or find a public parking lot along the route to park vehicles for viewing.
