The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 34 and American Legion Post 34 will host a 3 p.m. Memorial Day Service on Monday, May 25 at the fairgrounds, said Shirley Thornberry, the Auxiliary's first vice president.
"The service is in remembrance of our fallen men and women who lost their lives in all of our wars," Thornberry said.
Thornberry said crosses, which bear the names of military members from Anderson County and the wars in which they fought and died, would be erected at the fairgrounds.
The crosses mark the sacrifice of 14 who died in World War I, 38 from World War II, two from the Korean War, four from Vietnam and three who were killed in Iraq/Afghanistan.
"Let us not forget that freedom is not free," Thornberry said. "We encourage everyone to come by and see the crosses.
"We also remember our military both here and abroad who are protecting our country on a daily basis. Please come to pay tribute and honor these men and women."
The public is invited to the Memorial Day service and to visit the fairgrounds to observe the crosses.
