The 95th annual Memorial Day wreath-laying ceremony will take place on Memorial Day morning at the Boone County Courthouse in downtown Columbia.

Monday morning’s ceremony begins at 9 at the plaza, at Eighth and Walnut. That’s just in front of the courthouse.

The event is open to the public. American Legion members are encouraged to wear their Legion caps.
