Event Description
The Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of the Memorial Day Holiday.
 
Memorial Day is celebrated across the United States. Regardless of where it originated, it is an important holiday that remembers those that died for the country, and serves to remind people of the costly price of war. There are many formal ceremonies that take place in observance. Most of these are held in local communities, and can be found by contacting a local Veterans of Foreign Wars office or local city government agency. A few traditional events are listed below.

Laying of the wreath at Arlington Cemetery - Often, the President of the United States will lay a wreath at Arlington Cemetery on the annual observance of Memorial Day. This will usually be accompanied by a speech.

Remembrance and Moments of Silence - People nationwide participate in parades and still partake in decorating graves with wreaths or flowers. Many people will pause for moments of silence in memoriam.
