Memorial Day is an ail-American holiday, a day which has its roots in the war which had threatened to splh our young republic in two. This commemoratvie tradition began as Decoration Day on April 25,1866, when a group of young ladies in Columbus, Miss. Gathered flowers to decorate the graves of loved ones in the community cemetery.

It is this tradition which The American Legion proudly serves here hi Huntley, past Post Commander Emricson stated. Guest Speaker this year at the Memorial Day Ceremonies will be Bob Schultz, Americanism Chairman for Huntley American Legion Post #673.
