Twin Lakes Memorial Day coverage

Sheriff David Beth gathers candy from the street for some young parade spectators along the route of Monday's Memorial Day parade in Twin Lakes.

Twin Lakes American Legion Post 544 conducted its annual Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony today.

Rain earlier in the morning stopped just before parade step-off time. The parade made its way up Lance Drive and Main Street east to Legion Park.

A ceremony was held outside the Post headquarters at Legion Park just after the parade.

Here is some video of scenes from the parade and the ceremony:

Jim Hessil, American Legion 1st District Commander, delivered the address for the ceremony. Part of this powerful speech about the real meaning of Memorial Day was excerpted in the video above. Here is the full text (courtesy of state Rep. Samantha Kerkman).
