Hamilton Memorial Day Ceremonies Planned by Post 47
Hamilton American Legion Post 47 will start May 27 Memorial Day ceremonies with an 8 a.m. presentation at the World War One doughboy statue on the lawn of the Ravalli County Museum. Commander Ruth Bizarro-Cook said the 8 a.m. ceremony is one of three scheduled Monday morning. From the South 3rd location, the Post will travel to the West Main Bridge, where a salute to those lost at sea will be conducted. Following that, they'll have a ceremony at the Riverview Cemetery, by the GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) Memorial.
Then, it's off to Corvallis, for the 10 a.m. Memorial Day Parade, organized by Legion Post 91. Cook said the Hamilton American Legion Post will have a float in the parade, celebrating 100 years of service to Hamilton and the Bitterroot Valley.
