Our thanks to all who joined VFW Post 1454 to honor our Fallen Comrades this Memorial Day at Riverside Cemetery in Alma, Michigan. We were unable to gather for refreshments & fellowship after the ceremony because of the safety mandates in place for COVID-19 but it was a beautiful day and a surprising number of guests donned masks to spread across the cemetery to honor our nation's heroes. For those unable to join us this year, we hope you enjoy the slideshow below.
