SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 tElje fluntlep jfarms^ib£ HUNTLEY, ILUNOIS THURSDAY, JUNE 3, 1993 - VOLUME 33, NUMBER 6 USPS 580-360 ^ .- Huntley Girl Scouts (1 to r) Megan Anderson, Louise Melman, Amy Tures and Alison Smith are among the Huntley girl scouts who helped placed flags on veterans' graves in Huntley Cemetery after the Memorial Day Ceremonies. Herb Glissendorf, adjutant, made the introductions at the Memorial Day Ceremonies in Huntley Cemetery. Special guests were (1 to r) Mabel and Bob Schultz, World War I veteran Joe Bennet, May Chesak, Rev. Kittel and Marily Eckman. Huntley Celebrates Memorial Day By Joyce Liput While other towns complain of shrinking Memorial Day crowds and others cancel their celebrations entirely, Huntley's Memorial Day not only keeps going . . .it keeps growing. It seemed the crowds were bigger than ever. Memorial Day 1993 started out as a chilly, cloudy day. One would expect that fact alone to discourage people from coming out, but not in Huntley. The parade route was lined with people waving flags and cheering, and scooping up the candy thrown from the floats. The crowds didn't disperse after the parade passed by either. Families watched the parade go by, then fell in along the route, becoming part of the parade themselves. At the cemetery, Herb Glissendorf expertly handled the introductions of Marilyn Eckman and her honor guard of girl scouts, Melissa Hundley and Kira Bachrodt, placing a wreath at the base of the flag; Rev. Kittel giving the invocation and benediction; Amanda Yerke reading the poem "Flanders Fields" and May Chesak reading the response; Mr. Bob Schultz, the featured speaker; the Huntley High School Band; and Mr. Joe Bennett, a veteran of World War L The congregation at the cemetery listened solemnly to the prayers, speeches, music and readings and applauded enthusiastically for all. After the ceremony was over, small groups gathered among the graves paying tribute to those resting there and to the occasion itself. The Huntley Girls Scouts went through the cemetery placing flags on the graves of Huntley's veterans. Finally, townspeople gathered, as a family would, to share food and memories at the appropriate place, the Huntley American Legion Hall.

American Legion Auxilary President Marilyn Eckman and her honor guard of girl scouts Melissa Hundley and Kira Bachrodt placed a wreath at the base of the flag during Memorial Day cemeonies in Huntley Cemetery.
