Issue Date: May 22, 2019
Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Kniskern-Nuemann Post 8813 and Carlson-Alguire-Hoaglund Post 312 in Peshtigo, were busy finalizing plans for the annual Memorial Day services to be held at Riverside Cemetery in Peshtigo. Legion members will place over 700 flags on the cemetery plots of those veterans who have died, but will never be forgotten. Memorial Day services will take place all over the area this weekend. Memorial Day services in Peshtigo will be on on Monday, May 27 starting 11a.m. at Riverside Cemetery. In case of rain the program will take place at Peshtigo High School Gym. Veterans setting flags by grave markers include left to right: Tony Matecki, Virgil (Ron) Kaempf, Randy Ehlers and Bill Warren. Legion members encourage everyone to take time this weekend to reflect on the importance of Memorial Day and attend a memorial service close to where you live.
