The Clarksville Memorial Day service tradition continues with the support of many members of the community and a large crowd on Monday morning.

The sunny day found toddlers in wagons, senior citizens and all those in-between gathered on the hill of the little cemetery to pay respect to our fallen heroes and to also embrace our veterans and those currently serving.

Boy Scout Troop 155 of Clarksville hosted the service with the support of Boy Scout Troop 999, Cub Scout Pack 155 and organizer Nancy Riehle. “Taps” was played by Colton New as well as music by the Clinton-Massie High School Band, with readings by the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.

Special thanks to Lay Pastor Scarlett Rowland, guest speaker veteran Eric Sams, and the Clinton-Massie High School Band and Director Christin McClain.

Special guests included Clinton County Honor Flight alumni Jack Farquer and Bill Burnell.

This day was a blessing and we give thanks for this opportunity to bring the community together on this day of commemoration.
