Plans Made For Memorial Day Ceremony

Organizers today are putting the final pieces together on a Memorial Day program, planned for Monday morning at the Putnam County courthouse. The event is scheduled to take place starting at 11 am and will feature retired Major General David Evans as the speaker. It is being sponsored by several local veterans organizations, including American Legion Posts 46 and 135, VFW 6277 and 6296, Disabled American Veterans Chapter 117 and Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 741. The annual service, which pays tribute to those who have lost their lives in service to the country, traditionally includes the playing of "Taps."
