Mother nature shed tears in buckets early Monday morning, causing the Memorial services by the Cedar Springs American Legion Glen Hill Post #287 to be held indoors at the Legion. That meant that services at Elmwood, Solon and Nelson Cemeteries and the senior citizen center were canceled.
The Cedar Springs Marching Band played several songs, and the guest speaker was Gerald Dennis, a 1963 graduate of Cedar Springs High School, past department commander, and past 5th district commander. The weather had cleared by the time the services were concluded.
“Some people were upset that we didn’t go to Solon and Nelson,” noted Post Commander Bill Gregones.
“But the rule of thumb is that once we move it inside, we only do it once. Hopefully next year Mother nature will be good to us.”
Services at the VFW Post in Sand Lake went on as planned, at 10:30 a.m., outside the VFW Post.
