Greenwood memorial services planned

The Greenwood and New Whiteland Veterans Of Foreign Wars and the Greenwood American Legion Post 252 will jointly sponsor their annual memorial service program at each of the Greenwood cemeteries on Saturday morning.

Services will begin at Rock Lane Cemetery at 9 a.m., Greenwood Cemetery at 9:30 a.m., Mount Pleasant Cemetery at 10 a.m., The Gardens at Olive Branch at 10:30 a.m. and Forest Lawn Memory Gardens at 11 a.m.

The event, presented by their Greenwood/Whiteland Honor Guard and the Ladies Auxiliaries of each post, will feature an invocation, the setting of the wreath, rifle volley and taps in each of the five local cemeteries at the flagpole area.

All are invited to be part of honoring and remembering all military veterans, particularly those veterans who gave their lives fighting for our country.
