Our program will start at 10:30 with the Pledge of Allegiance led by the Boys and Girl Scouts.  There will be singing by the Cactus Cuties and the BLHS choir.  Scott Hable will be our guest speaker. We will have a short video featuring Coffey Anderson with the song “Memorial”.  We will also be recognizing two members on their years of membership.

The laying of the wreaths will be done outside by the flagpole along with the rifle squad salute and Taps.

We will have Poppies for sale for a free will donation. Poppies symbolize the sacrifice of U.S. servicemembers killed while protecting our nation.  We wear the flower to honor those fallen heroes – and in support of our military veterans, and their families.
