Honoring Memorial Day 2020
Although this year’s Memorial Day will look differently than previous Memorial Days in the City of Geneva due to COVID-19, we have ensured that we continue to honor those who sacrificed their lives while serving in the US Military. Today at 10am, Geneva PD laid a wreath in honor of those we remember on Memorial Day.
We remember and honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice today, and take time to reflect on their unending legacy.
We also look back to remember Memorial Days of years past in Geneva. Courtesy of Geneva Historical Society.

Although the annual Memorial Day events have been canceled this year due to COVID-19, we appreciate the work DPW has done to keep Glenwood Cemetery and Pulteney Park warm weather ready.
