Thank you from Cheney Cemetery Association
Letters to the Editor
The Cheney Cemetery Association would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers who helped make this year’s Memorial Day program and breakfast so successful. We appreciate everyone who helped and are very grateful.
Thank you to EWU ROTC Lt. Col. Jason Pape, whose voice rang out over the program audience as he spoke about the solemn reason for observing Memorial Day. Special thanks must go to all of the young people who gave their time to honor the fallen American heroes of war on Memorial Day.
Cub Scout Pack 365 placed American flags on the graves of those who served in our Armed Forces and the Pledge of Allegiance at the program. The Star Spangled Banner was sung by Claire Israel and Caleb McKumber sounded “Taps,” both Cheney High School students.
Boy Scout Troop 365 made sure patrons of the Memorial Day breakfast were well served and comfortable. Before they left the breakfast venue the place was spotless. All of these students are a credit to our community.
A wise friend of our association once said, “You get out of a community what you put into it.” We are certain these fine young people will continue to serve their communities as they finish school and enter adulthood.
Once again, the American Legion Post 72 was kind enough to allow us to use their hall for our Memorial Day breakfast. We would also like to thank our mowing crew, weed eating team from Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge an AG Enterprises for their assistance and Mike Jackson for his contribution towards our roadways.
Thank you very, very much.
