Flags, flowers and wreaths were placed on graves, seven gun salutes rang in the air, and taps sounded last weekend as area communities paid tribute to our deceased veterans this past Memorial Day. Parades were held and speakers addressed those gathered in parks, cemeteries and churches.

The Jewett VFW Post 3072 sponsored Jewett’s services on Memorial Day. Pictured below are: Taps being sounded, the seven-gun salute, Jim Thompson saluting the flag, and former Jewett resident Steve Wilson addresses the crowd.

People also gathered to watch, as participants in the Scio Memorial Day Parade passed by. Pictured are Scio American Legion Post #482, Scio American Legion Post #482 Ladies’ Auxiliary followed by Boy Scout Troop #269, Scio Vikings Biddy Baseball Team, and Jewett Indians Biddy Baseball Team.
