Few events are planned in Aitkin County for Memorial Day, May 25.

City officials, local churches, veterans organizations and chambers of commerce in the county report no events planned, with the exception of Hill City.

Hill City Mayor Dan Kingsley originally reported that the city council approved services by the American Legion to be held at Veterans Park in Hill City on Memorial Day, but now those have been cancelled. Other cancellations are plans in Palisade. The Palisade VFW has announced that there will be no Memorial Day services at Pine Grove, Palisade and Waukenabo Cemeteries.

McGregor will not have services either.
