On Monday there were no
generation gaps present at the American Legion Post 263 Memorial Day
services. The crowds of people ranged in age from the very
young to the young at heart, all enjoying the day and remembering
that the reason for coming together was to celebrate those who have
fought for the freedoms we now enjoy.
In the afternoon, The Christian Village brought
out a busload of its residents to take part in the balloon
launch. Members of the Lincoln Community High
School National Honor Society were there passing out cold drinks and
snacks to the special guests.
Strewn into the mix were toddlers, children,
teenagers, all the way along the line to those who have lived a long
life and are now enjoying the twilight of their years.
