Memorial Day Mass and Ceremony 2019

Memorial Day Mass and Ceremony

On May 26 2019, our Post held our annual Memorial Day Mass at Sacred Heart Church in Newburgh.  After the Mass, we went across the street to the old Sacred Heart School where we honor our deceased members at our annual Memorial Day Ceremony.
