John Watson Post 257 American Legion members Ken Koll, Floyd Rogotzke, Doug Wenisch and John Ryan were seen placing flags on Central Street this past Friday.

Legion honors local heroes

Flags were placed for Memorial Day and in honor and mourning of military personnel who had died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the American Legion made the difficult decision to cancel the annual Memorial Day Program.  The John Watson Post 257 will, however, put up the usual avenue of flags and crosses at East End Park early morning on Memorial Day.
