'They should always be remembered'

Where: Starts along Jackson Avenue at West Street; heads north on Washington Street; turns east on Benton Avenue, concludes in Central Park, 104 E. Benton Ave.

There, the Naperville Municipal Band plays and an invocation is made. A student gives a patriotic speech and a high school chorus sings.
