With the coronavirus pandemic still active, the annual Memorial Day ceremony usually held at Veteran's Memorial hall and parade through downtown Waterloo have been canceled.
A prerecorded observance will air on Waterloo public access (Channel 15 & 79-2) several times during the holiday weekend. Those times are as follows:
Saturday, May 30th: 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Sunday, May 31st: 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday
Monday, May 25th: 5:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m. and 11 p.m.

The observance features many Veteran Memorial Hall Commission members. Black Hawk County Supervisor Craig White reads the names of the 185 Waterloo veterans who have passed since last Memorial Day. Bill Quibell leads the audience in song. Jim Lentfer gives a history of the Veterans Memorial Hall. Randy Miller talks us through the POW MIA table set for one.
