Major changes due to COVID
It was a solemn ceremony honoring the veterans who have passed since last Memorial Day at the Oakwood Cemetery in Lowell on Monday.
Even though, there was no music by any of the Lowell Area Schools bands or a parade, the small gathering was complete with a rifle salute at the Civil War Memorial.
Chaplain Glen Marks said the blessings and the prayers for the departed veterans.
After reading the names of the deceased veterans to the ring of the bell, the participants listened to the haunting sound of TAPS.
Seven hundred graves were marked with American flags.
