>Palestine Memorial Day Services


Palestine Memorial Day parade stepped off at 10:00 am with the Hollansburg and New Madison American Legion and Auxiliary leading the way. The Tri-Village Junior High Band marched followed by the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts; and then members of the community carrying flowers to decorate the graves. There were little ones in strollers and wagons and children with bikes decorated. In all 75-90 participants marched down Main Street pass on-lookers to the cemetery. The American Legion honor guard commemorated the fallen soldiers. The band played a patriotic medley and the Star Spangled Banner. Pastor Tracy Brown gave the commemorative speech to the estimated 150-175 in attendance. Preparations were made by the Liberty Township Trustees and sound provided by Brewer Sound. This Memorial Day tradition was another opportunity to remember our fallen soldiers and an opportunity for the next generation to learn about respecting those who have served our county and to show respect for Old Glory and reverence for our Creator.
