Our Guest Speaker, Ken Henderson, V.F.W. Chaplain told stories of the first Memorial Day and remembering the Veterans we have lost. The Color Guard from the V.F.W. performed the flag ceremony and Taps. Florence Elks members Danny Wright sang God Bless America accompanied by Howard Ziebell, organist. Florence Elks Veterans Lisa Brenner, Army and Sharon Armstrong, Coast Guard were among the many Veterans that attended and helped with both ceremonies.  The Ladies of Elks served refreshments to conclude the ceremony.
The Coast Guard spread the many wreaths afloat in memory of our fallen heroes at the Memorial Ceremony at the Veteran's Memorial Park.
