Memorial Day events were special
To the editor:
Thanks again to the Lakeville North High School band the VFW Post 210 and Men & Women’s Auxiliary and the American Legion Post 44 of Lakeville.
We provided memorial services at 12 cemeteries and then we concluded our Memorial Day services at the Lakeville Veterans Memorial.
The turnout this year was the largest at the cemeteries and at the veterans memorial. Our Lakeville veterans are proud to provide this service to our community.
Just a note: The Lakeville North High School band has participated at these memorial services for the past 33 years and this would not be possible without the dedication of Mr. Nate Earp, Lakeville North High School band director.
Kudos to Mr. Earp and all of the band members who took their day off to make 2012 Memorial Day special for families that have veterans buried in the 12 cemeteries that we honor with our services.
God bless America.
