Some Area Cemeteries Plan Memorial Day Services, Altered Due To COVID 19

Memorial Day ceremonies at area cemeteries in honor of our veterans and loved ones will include special messages, placing of flowers or wreaths, rifle salutes, reading of names and the playing of Taps. Some traditional ceremonies have been cancelled due to COVID 19.

The activities honor our veterans who served in the United States military, and in some cases made the supreme sacrifice in defense of their country. Avenues of flags and individual flags will add beauty to their resting place.

Council Grove

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Memorial Day services will not be held. Avenues of flags and individual flags will add beauty to Greenwood and Sunnyslope cemeteries.

Displays will be set up at Greenwood Cemetery, the tank and the Memorial at the Courthouse. Poppies will be placed in the boots in various locations in town in keeping with tradition.
