Veterans groups throughout Door and Kewaunee County have activities planned this weekend to honor their comrades. Kewaunee County Veteran’s Services Officer Jane Babcock says Memorial Day should be a day of thanks because as the adage says, some gave all, but all gave some.
Babcock traces her own military roots to the Revolutionary War. Her father and grandfather were veterans of the World Wars and they will be on her mind Monday. She says the county observance of Memorial Day will take place at the County Courthouse War Memorial at 11 AM Monday, preceded by a parade in Kewaunee at 10:15. She recommends contacting veterans’ groups in your community to learn about your local cemetery ceremonies.
