Large crowds take in Memorial Day programs

At Lakeside Memorial Park, the crowd heard comments from guest speaker Kelly Freudenberg, the Gold Star mother of Elden Arcand who lost in his life in Iraq in 2005 while serving with the Army.

The combined color guard and rifle squad also traveled to area cemeteries to pay honor to all fallen comrades. (Photo By Cliff Buchan)
