My Memorial Day morning………

Was spent in our little town’s (pop. 990) park as the annual observance honoring local veterans was presented. The weather was perfect and the attendance very respectable. The local American Legion organizes this event and the Houston High School band supplies fabulous music. The flag was presented…….IMG_0611   and the band played the various military branch’s anthems as the individual flag was raised to full staff…..IMG_0612  The local quilt club, the “Bent Needle”, presented a Quilt of Service to several of the veterans who were able to be in attendance. The Boy Scouts placed the wreath at our Veterans’ Memorial…………IMG_0614IMG_0616   Sadly, the gal in the above picture with the quilt received it posthumously for her husband who had passed away just days ago.

May God bless all who are serving, or have served, and those at home awaiting their return!
