Following a parade along Water Street to the South Shore Boat Club in Peru, several speakers, including former state senator Gary Dahl, addressed those attending. Special guests of honor were three Pearl Harbor survivors. The service also included a fly-over by three military aircraft and a wreath-laying ceremony in the Illinois River.
