This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Proctor American Legion, Lind-Gordon-Berg Post 106.


Proctor’s American Legion Post 106 said Saturday that the Honor Guard will continue its solemn duty to remember its war dead this Memorial Day with new safety measures in place.

These measures include following current public health guidelines—limiting their numbers to less than 10 and keeping a six-foot distance from each other. Additionally, they won’t be joined by their Community Band, members of the High School Choir, keynote speakers and St. Rose Men’s Club Donuts.

“We encourage everyone to continue giving special recognition and remembrance of those who have served to preserve and protect our freedom," Proctor Legion Commander Jim Kemick said. “Stay home, stay safe and remember why we celebrate Memorial Day.”

The Proctor American Legion Honor Guard will visit six-area cemeteries to honor the fallen veterans beginning at 9:30am Monday.

Those include: 

  • Proctor Community Center
  • Pine Hill in Midway
  • Augustana in Midway
  • Solway - Maple Grove Road
  • Twig Industrial Road, Grand Lake
  • Pike Lake in Canosia
  • Hermantown - 5345 Morris Thomas Road
