2017 Memorial Day Program in Cadiz

IMG_1218

Today the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter hosted its annual “Roll Call of Patriots” Memorial Day program at the West End Cemetery.  The program gives attendees the opportunity to recognize their Patriot ancestors by having their names read.  As each name is read, attendees place a flower at the revolutionary War “Missing Soldier” monument.

Eleven Compatriots and two Col. Stephen Trigg Ladies’ Auxiliary members took part in the program.  New member Pete Lehman of Russellville was given his oath and received his SAR membership rosette.

A Memorial Day commemoration is considered a National Color Guard Event in the SAR.  Each participant received credit for participation in this even which, in turn, counts toward their earning of the Silver Color Guard Medal.  We look forward to another wonderful Memorial Day event in 2018!
