Memorial Day filled with remembrance, respect


Memorial Day remembrances began at 8 a.m., Monday, May 31 with a salute and taps at the VFW Post 3388 in Estherville. The ceremonies that moved on through area cemeteries were augmented with high school buglers playing Taps and auxiliary members joining the honor guards.

At the public ceremony held at the National Guard Readiness Center, Dana Russell was honored as the American Legion Post 91’s first woman commander. The Estherville Lincoln Central High School Varsity Band played patriotic music, and band directors Laura Giebler and Craig Began, along with high school art teacher Nicholas Rice, played a patriotic medley in clarinet-tuba trio.
