Windom native Eric Ahlness, Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army in Minnesota, will bring the Memorial Day keynote address at Windom’s annual Memorial Day observance, today, at the Windom Community Center.
The program begins at 10:30 a.m., with a brief ceremony at Lakeview Cemetery in Windom following the program.
This is Windom’s first Memorial Day program in three years. The 2020 and 2021 programs were both cancelled due to the pandemic. Ahlness was scheduled to speak at the 2020 program.
Ahlness is a 1982 graduate of Windom Area High School and graduated from Mankato State University in 1986 with bachelor degrees in geography and history.
