Finding ways to honor on Memorial Day weekend

Click headline for photos.

By Joe Hare

Due to the situation with COVID-19, our VFW was unable to have our annual Memorial Day program, but other ways were found to honor the memories of those who died while serving.

On Saturday morning, 23 May, 2020, a group of members of Columbia Masonic Lodge, Masonic Demolay, Columbia VFW and VFW Auxiliary met to place flags on the graves deceased veterans. More than 20 volunteers were at Haven Hill Cemetery, and a similiar number volunteered at City Cemetery.

On Monday, Memorial Day, May 25, 2020, some members of VFW Post 6097 and 6097 Auxiliary met at our Memorial Monument to honor our deceased Brothers and Sisters.

Rest in Peace Comrades.
