Memorial Day Services in Galion, Ohio?

I've just spent the past hour searching for information about Memorial Day Services in Galion, Ohio, and while I found the city auditor posted on Facebook for the Galion Alumni Band members to be at their meeting spot for the parade at 9:30 tomorrow morning (May 28, 2018), I couldn't find any other information whatsoever.

So, When Are the Memorial Day Services in Galion This Year?

I would answer that question, but, I don't know because I can't find it anywhere... but...  it's apparently some time after 9:30 tomorrow morning. 

(Oh, and Splash Park will be open from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. according to the city's Facebook page - so that's nice for the people who have little kids.)

I haven't found a single solid piece of information on when exactly the Memorial Day parade starts or about any type of memorial services offered to honor the veterans who died in service to our country.

So, in the absence of any real information on the services to be held in Galion tomorrow - I would like to simply take this moment to honor our veterans who gave their lives in service to the country. 

History of Memorial Day in the US

Memorial Day has been part of this country's legacy since the late 1800's, and while it has emerged as the unofficial start of summer and a popular day to enjoy a cookout, it's a lot more than just a day to have picnics or to get an extra day off work.

While this is a very brief summary, Memorial Day is a day that has been set aside to remember the people who died while serving in the armed forces.

Think, if you will, about the magnitude of that for a moment...

Whether you're making the most of the life you've been given, or you're screwing things up royally, people gave their lives so you could be free and have one and make your own choices, and Memorial Day gives you the opportunity to pause for a moment and remember those service people and what they sacrificed for you.

Where I Looked for Information About Memorial Day Events in Galion

Something like Memorial Day services and the parade time should be big news in a small town like Galion, but it got no coverage in regards to when to be there. (At least not that I could find online)

By the way: Some of the places I checked looking for Memorial Day service and parade information - and found none - include:
  • The Galion Inquirer Website
  • The City of Galion's Official website, which did have some nice photos of the 2016 events,
  • Several Galion-themed Facebook pages, including
    • The city's official Facebook page
    • The Chamber of Commerce's
    • The Galion Inquirer's
    • Plus, I entered Galion Ohio Memorial Day 2018 Services in Facebook and in the regular Google search engines and got zero results.
  • Crawford Source
  • The Bucyrus Telegraph Forum (just in case they covered it)
  • The News Journal website (just in case they covered it)
  • The Marion Star website, (just in case they covered it)
  • The Morrow County Sentinel (just in case they covered it)

Maybe in the Future Galionite Can Share This Information...

So, just a thought... this blog exists to share information, and no other sites appear to be sharing information about things happening in Galion anyway...

So, if you are handing an upcoming event, please keep in mind and feel free to share the information about your event by emailing the "Who, What, When, Where, Why etc. (anything folks need to know in order to attend your event) to - and your Galion, Ohio event will be covered here on the site and shared on Facebook to increase community awareness of it.


I found this info in a conversation in a Facebook group: Parade line-up in front of the American Legion. Shotgun starts the parade at 10am... At 8:15am, before the parade,  there will be snacks at The American Legion (Banq side) Luncheon at the VFW after the Fairview Cemetery ceremony.

Other comments mentioned this being in the newspaper - but - it wasn't on their website, and few people see news that isn't digitally-printed anymore, so I'm hoping sharing it here helps.  

Second Update: The Galion Inquirer website added a brief post about Galion's Memorial Day service and parade this morning - which is great - but for people who like to plan ahead, there would have been no chance to attend.
