DuPage County Launches Interactive Memorial Day Portal
Since social distancing requirements will prevent people from gathering to celebrate Memorial Day, DuPage County has developed a website for residents to virtually gather and share stories and photos to honor the memories of fallen heroes.
The County’s IT and GIS team created the interactive memorial, which can be found at www.dupageco.org/memorial. The site allows residents to create their own Honor Post highlighting their loved one or friend, along with a photo and written tribute.
“While we may not be able to gather in person this year, we are united in our desire to honor DuPage men and women who gave their lives while serving as members of the U.S. Armed Forces,” said Chairman Dan Cronin.
The website also features quotes, poems, and videos for tribute, educational, and historical information surrounding the Memorial Day holiday.
To visit the virtual Memorial Day portal, please visit www.dupageco.org/memorial.
