Lincoln American Legion Post 9 Commander Rick Foreman welcomes the small crowd to the short Memorial Day observance held at the lower cemetery on Morris Drive.

Lincoln American Legion Post 9 held a short Memorial Day ceremony Monday, May 25. The ceremony, a 21-shot volley followed by the playing of Taps and the flag raising, drew more than a dozen onlookers, including veterans and family members.

Post 9 held the short ceremony in lieu of their standard ceremony at the Community Hall due to concerns about COVID-19. The ceremony was originally planned for the historic cemetery in Lincoln Gulch, but was changed due to roadway flooding.
