The ceremony included speeches from local veterans and community members. Nicholas County High School JROTC program participated in the ceremony by posting and retrieving colors and marching with the flag. A cadet also rang the bell for every soldier who died in war.
“Since COVID was significant and we had the shutdown we did not have a Memorial Day service. So this service today is a combined service for Memorial Day and Veterans Day,” Councilmember Coleman Kuhn said.
