Turnout still great
Memorial Day services a washout? Not on your life. There were approximately 300 people who attended the indoor service hosted by the VFW with the American Legion at the Legion Post. I believe the crowd had a great attitude after our move from Lakeside Memorial Park due to rain. And there still were surprisingly good turnouts at the four local cemeteries. Remembering and memorializing our deceased veterans pays them the highest honor. We vets are ever impressed by the way Forest Lake area people turn out to support their veterans and military. Thank you all.
