DuPage County Highlights Interactive Memorial Day Portal
Due to COVID-19 public health concerns, DuPage County will relaunch its interactive Memorial Day portal, allowing residents to “virtually” gather, share stories and photos honoring the memories of fallen heroes.
Shortly after the pandemic hit last year, the County’s IT and GIS team created the interactive memorial, which can be found at www.dupageco.org/memorial. The website allows residents to share their Honor Posts highlighting their family member or friend, along with a photo and written tribute.
The website also features quotes, poems, and videos offering historical information surrounding the Memorial Day holiday.
“When we launched this portal last year, we received an overwhelmingly positive response from the community. Our residents recognize the importance of Memorial Day. If we cannot yet gather in person, our digital Memorial Wall provides an interactive way to tell the stories of DuPage County men and women who gave their lives while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces,” said County Board Chairman Dan Cronin.
To visit the virtual Memorial Day portal, please visit www.dupageco.org/memorial.
