>Neave Township Memorial Day ceremony – Sunday

>The Neave Township Memorial Day ceremony will take place this Sunday – noon – at the Ft. Jefferson cemetery on State Route 121. In the event of rain, the ceremony will be moved to the church in Ft. Jefferson. The special guest speaker will be 79th District State Representative Dick Adams.

******************************************

Update: It was another beautiful day in Neave Township for the annual Memorial Day ceremony. A solid crowd gathered to hear featured speaker Dick Adams, who gave a terrific speech. At one point, Adams drew unexpected applause from the crowd when he said there were already too many laws. Pastor Doug Baker gave the invocation and benediction. Julie Lemon played taps and sang the national anthem beautifully. The Ft. Jefferson United Methodist worship team performed, the Laroy Farst Post 245 presented the colors, and New Madison Cub Scout Troop 149 placed the memorial wreath. But more important than anything else was the spirit of appreciation for our soldiers who have sacrificed – some giving the ultimate sacrifice – to preserve our freedom. As Dick Adams said, it is a debt we can never fully repay.
