Oglesby decked out in Red, White and Blue for Memorial Day

Posted by wlpo on May 27, 2016

Drive through Oglesby this Memorial Day weekend and you’ll likely notice the city’s support for veterans.

The city has put a banner up at City Hall which lists the names of men and women from the area who have died in the line of duty. That’s just the latest banner supporting veterans to go up in the city. The city sold out of banners they planned to put on light poles in the city as a tribute to veterans.

Becky Clinard is Oglesby’s City Clerk, and she says the program’s success makes her even happier to live in the city. Clinard says the banners are actually part of the city’s Summer Fun Fest parade June 10th, but they show the city’s patriotism year-round. She says they knew the banners would be a success when they sold more than 75 in just the first few days.
