Special thanks to all members of the American Legion and Auxiliary for a memorable and meaningful Memorial Day ceremony.
I highly recommend it to all residents of our village for next year as a brief but important acknowledgment of those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom and democratic principles. It is too easy to take for granted what we have and forget to acknowledge those who helped make it possible.
The speeches were brief but poignant, the songs were beautifully rendered and the color guard did a fabulous job with our flags. See all of you next year!
