EUGENE, Ore. — One of the longest standing and most touching Memorial Day ceremonies took place in Harrisburg Monday. Veterans, Boy Scouts Troop 89, and the community performed wreath laying and flag ceremonies at cemeteries all around town.
Four war veterans and VFW members shared their stories in this touching tribute, that started at the River Bank Gazebo. Boy Scouts dropped a handmade wreath created by Margaret Kimbro of Junction City from the bridge overlooking the Willamette River.
They then lowered flags to half staff and laid wreaths at the Alford Cemetery, IOOF/Masonic Cemetery, and Woodmen of the World Cemetery.
