Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- One village official put attendance at Monday’s Memorial Day observance at “a couple of hundred” people. He was not far off. A generous crowd sat in the shade and the sun with the Park Forest American Legion and paid tribute to those who had given their all in service to this country.

Once again, the event was hosted by Bill Patterson.

Video and a photo gallery follow.
