Memorial Day services in Philip

Roll call of the dead was given. One poppy for each name called was placed on the grave. Flags drifted a bit in the light breeze. Soldiers, civilians, men, women, children – all stood in reverence to the long list of names slowly called. Memorial Day services began at the Philip Masonic Cemetery, and concluded at the American Legion Hall. The Color Guard, invocation, 21-gun salute, speakers Roger Porch and Lester Pearson, and the patriotic music were all simply extensions of the sobering “Taps” played by the graveside.
