These two Cub Scouts were among several who attentively watched and listened to the Memorial Day Ceremony.

In between showers the morning of Memorial Day, May 25, Wauzeka’s annual parade went on as planned. These men and women proudly represented the local American Legion post. The community’s Memorial Day festivities also included a program at the school and a chicken dinner, which was moved indoors due to the rain.

As is the tradition each year, memorial services were held at 10 different cemeteries in the outlying countryside of the two communities.

Though the rain did fall, the brave stood tall. American Legion Post 148 Abraham Hickok Wetmore, Bloomington, is pictured standing solemnly during the drizzly and chilly Memorial Day observances in the Bloomington and Glen Haven area Monday.
