No Memorial Day Events This Year

Due to the Governor extending the Stay-at-Home Order through May 30, Memorial Day events will not be held this year. Event organizers have cancelled Memorial Day activities in order to practice proper social distancing in support of public health safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, St. Charles Mayor Raymond Rogina honors those who have given their lives in service to our country in a special video message. Watch it here.
