Linden Memorial Day events included the traditional Memorial Day service Monday, May 31, at 10 a.m., at the Fairview Cemetery Veterans Monument. It was led by the Linden VFW Post 4642.
“As I walked to the event, I met a family spanning many generations. They were attending the event as they have done for the past 30 years. It was great to see so many people keeping the tradition and making the ceremony part of their day,” said Linden Mayor Danielle Cusson.
The Memorial Day Parade and Picnic did not take place this year due to COVID-10.
The Fenton Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) Post 3243 and Auxiliary did a procession in downtown Fenton for Memorial Day along with two wreath presentations, one at the bridge over the Shiawassee River and one at Freedom Park. After, they traveled to Oakwood Cemetery for a Memorial Day service at the soldier’s statue. There was no parade this year due to COVID-19.
