Racine & Me: Real Racine becomes Visit Racine County

RACINE, WI (CBS 58) -- Cari Greving is the Interim Executive Director of Visit Racine County. She joined us in studio to discuss changes to Real Racine and upcoming events. 

Memorial Day remembrance ceremony: 

West Lawn Memorial Park will hold its annual Memorial Day remembrance ceremony at 9:30 a.m. Monday, May 29, at the cemetery, 9000 Washington Ave. (The entrance is off 90th Street.)

The ceremony, open to all, takes place in the Garden of Valor, located at the north end of the park. West Lawn staff will be on hand to direct attendees to the service location.

The service, lasting approximately 40 minutes, is scheduled to include musical performances by bagpiper James Melnychuk, a performance of “Taps” by bugler William Gerlach, and a singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” by Morgan Kelsey.

Members of Sturtevant VFW Post 9948 will present the colors and provide a rifle salute, invocation and benediction. The South Shore Fire Department is scheduled to be on hand to provide a patriotic entryway to the park with one of its aerial trucks.

The ceremony also will include a keynote address from historical interpreter David Wiedenkeller and a reading of veterans who have passed over the past year and have been interred at West Lawn Memorial Park.

For more information, call West Lawn Memorial Park at 262-886-2400.

Geology and Nature of Siena Grounds:

Join us as we explore the many diverse ecosystems of the Siena grounds—the lakeshore, woodlands, prairie, and wetlands all packed into one beautiful space.

During this day of exploration, we will learn about the geological movements that shaped the land and lake we love. We will also identify the various plant species and discuss their role in the environment as well as the differences between native, non-native, and invasive species.

Please wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the day’s weather.
