LAKEWOOD – A drive-in service to honor fallen military heroes is scheduled to take place on Memorial Day at the Chautauqua Mall.

The Blue Star Mothers local chapter is hosting the event at 1 p.m. at the corner of Mall Boulevard and Fairmount Avenue.

Susan Rowley, the President of the Blue Star Mothers Lake Erie Chapter, says the event is inspired by drive-in church services and will be broadcast LIVE on WJTN 1240 AM and 101.3 FM so listeners can hear safety from their vehicles.

“We are asking people to bring a flag, wave a flag, just remember, and honor all of our Gold Star Heroes and their families,” explained Rowley in an interview with WNYNewsNow on Wednesday.

The Blue Star Mothers previously scheduled Gold Star Memorial will now take place in September instead of the Saturday before Memorial Day due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions.
