Memorial Day Celebration in Ligonier

The West Noble American Legion Post 243 held a Memorial Day ceremony in Oak Park Cemetery Monday. The names of those who passed this year were read. Nathan Denot, legion member, gave a speech, and a pastor did a sermon and prayer. Legion members performed a rifle salute and played Taps. Then the celebration was moved to Pettit Park where Ligonier Mayor Patty Fisel recognized the Navy and Coast Guard by tossing a wreath in the Elkhart River.
