Memorial Day ceremonies were held Monday afternoon at the Veterans Memorial Park in Perry.

Some two dozens attendees saw members of Perry’s Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2060 discharge the ceremonial duties, with Chaplain Mark Golightly giving the benediction and Commander Matt Bramer delivering a fitting eulogy.

A muster of the 28 veterans buried in Violet Hill Cemetery since last Memorial Day was then proclaimed, followed by a gun salute and “Taps,” played by VFW member Scott Potter.

The tasteful ceremonies lasted about 20 minutes, and the citizens enjoyed fellowship afterward.
