A flag draped coffin honoring the memory of all deceased veterans followed the Color Guard.

A wreath was placed on the cannon at State Street Park during the ceremonies which also included the reading of the names of the communities’ veterans who had passed away this year, a 21 gun salute and the playing of echo Taps. Click here to view a video of the ceremony.
