Memorial Day Activities 2014

On the morning of Thursday, May 22, small flags were placed on the graves of all veterans in Harlington Cemetery. Eighth-graders from Waverly-Shell Rock Middle School were among those who helped and were recognized in the May 27th edition of the Bremer County Independent.

On Saturday, May 24, the Avenue of Flags was put up at Harlington Cemetery.

The Memorial Day parade was held Monday, May 26 at 10:00 AM, followed by a lunch at the Legion Hall north of the cemetery. That afternoon, the small flags were gathered and the Avenue of Flags was dismantled.

The WAVP extends its thanks to those who came out to help.

In Closing...

The WAVP Veterans Center honors the Veterans of yesterday, today and tomorrow. It recognizes and celebrates the sacrifice of those who served in past conflicts, those who serve today, and those whose service awaits them. These men and women and their families are ever mindful of the reality that freedom is not free. It is in this spirit that we build this very special home "Where Patriots Gather"
