Shell casings fly as members of VFW Post No. 33 Honor Guard fire a 21-gun salute during the 2017 Memorial Day service at Westmoreland County Memorial Park in Hempfield Township. The Norwin Historical Society is planning a 21-gun salute at ceremonies Sunday at Penn-Lincoln Memorial Park.

The Norwin Historical Society will hold its annual Memorial Day observances Sunday at area cemeteries and war memorials.

The historical society will place a wreath at 1 p.m. at the Monument to the Fallen at the Penn-Lincoln Memorial Park, North Huntingdon. Ceremonies will include a 21-gun salute and the playing of Taps, according to Carl Huszar, historical society president.

The society will conduct a similar ceremony at 1:50 p.m. at the Brush Creek Cemetery on Leger Road, North Huntingdon.

Other wreath-laying ceremonies will follow at 2:20 p.m. at the North Huntingdon Town House, 2:45 p.m. at the Westmoreland City Memorial along Route 993 and 3 p.m. at the Biddle War Memorial, Huszar said.

The historical society has been conducting the Memorial Day observances since 1997.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
