Activities to honor the Memorial Day holiday are taking place in Cook County on Monday, May 25. 
 
American Legion Post 413 is hosting a brief version of the traditional Memorial Day ceremony on the Cook County Courthouse lawn starting at 11 a.m. The Legion Color Guard will follow the CDC physical distance guidelines and asks any members of the public who wish to attend to do the same. The observance will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather. 
 
The Post 413 American Legion Auxilliary and Sons of the American Legion are offering a takeout lunch for veterans and spouses. The chicken dinner meal can be picked up from Grandma Ray's between noon and 3 p.m.  Because this is not a sit-down meal, Grandma Ray's asks that diners call to preorder meals by Sunday, May 24. Call 387-2974. 
 
Grand Portage American Legion Post 2009 is offering a bratwurst meal with curbside pickup at the Post at 8495 E. Highway 61, from 12 noon until food is gone. This is for Grand Portage community members.  
 
WTIP’s Rhonda Silence spoke with American Legion Post 413 Commander Bob Mattson about the plans for honoring this special day.
