COVID-19 Changes Plans for Russell Memorial Day Program

Memorial Day 2016 6Traditionally, Russell VFW Post 6240 and Russell American Legion Post 99 join together to host Memorial Day Programs at cemeteries in Bunker Hill, Gorham and Russell. But as we all know, this has been far from a normal year.

According to Russell VFW Post Commander Lee Keffer, no services will be held at those cemeteries this year. Instead, due to COVID-19 and social distancing rules, a special Memorial Day Program will be broadcast on KRSL AM 990 and 98.1 FM starting at 10 AM on Monday, May 25.

The Russell VFW and Russell American Legion encourage you to listen as they honor our military men and women who have given their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today.
