Oconee County Memorial Day Ceremony Moved Indoors To Honor 39 From County Who Gave Their Lives In Foreign Wars

***Roll Call Highlights Program***

The rain moved the ceremony to the gym at the Community Center in Oconee Veterans Park on Monday, where about 150 people turned out to honor all military veterans and the 39 fallen from Oconee County whose names are engraved on the memorial at the front of the park.

The program kicked off with Art Ryder, representing the William Daniell Society, Children of the American Revolution, reading In Flanders Fields, a poem from the First World War.
