Residents gathered at cemeteries and other outposts Monday to remember those who died in the service of our country, and all those that have made our freedom possible.
The American Legion Glen Hill Post #287 held services at Elmwood, Solon, and East Nelson Cemeteries and the Cedar Springs Veterans Park. Guest speaker was Fifth District Commander Peter Satterthwaite. Also on hand for the service was the American Legion Honor Guard, the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary, the Sons of the American Legion and the Boy Scouts.
Services were also held in Algoma Township, Sand Lake, and Sparta. The Cedar Springs Historical Society held their annual cemetery walk in Elmwood Cemetery on the Sunday before Memorial Day.
