UPDATED time, locations for Memorial Day ceremony

The flagpole at 7th and Watchung is a memorial to those who died in WWI.
An UPDATE to the Courier's online Memorial Day listings this afternoon now shows the following information for Plainfield --
A Memorial Day Day service will be hosted by VFW Post 7474 and American Legion Post 219. It will begin at 9:30 a.m. with the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Plainfield City Hall, followed at 9:45 a.m. with a flag-raising at the World War I memorial at Seventh Street and Watchung Avenue, and then a 10 a.m. prayer service at St. Mary Parish at Sixth and Liberty streets.

There is still no notice on the City's website.

The newspapers list voluminous details on ceremonies in central New Jersey communities (see the Courier here, the Ledger here) -- now including informationfor Plainfield.
