Due to the pandemic, this years Legion Memorial Day services were a bit different. For their safety, we did not ask the Band or the local Scout organizations to participate in the ceremony. The Color Guard and Honor Guard for the Legion, SAL and Auxiliary was on a strictly volunteer basis. We held the Ceremony on the Bridge, went to the Taopi Cemetery, the Marshall Lutheran Cemetery and the St John's Lutheran Cemetery in rural Elkton. Thank you to all who came to honor our departed brothers and sisters on this Memorial Day. Thank you to the Sheriffs Deputy for stopping traffic for the bridge ceremony, Joni Smith and Kyle Bergstrom for providing the sound system, Maddie Merten and Lexi Smith for playing TAPS at each location and the Color Guard and Honor Guards. To those who came to witness the ceremonies, we thank you for social distancing, wearing a mask or watching from your vehicle. It has been a few years since the weather cooperated for the Flag Burning Ceremony but this year we were able to do that. Again, thank you to everyone for honoring our departed Veterans on Memorial Day in person or in spirit. Please feel free to tag anyone in these photos. Thanks!
