Memorial Day Program in Ortonville 2019

Another amazing Memorial Day Program sponsored by the Big Stone Lake VFW Post 3964 and the VFW Auxiliary Post 3964 which was held at the Ortonville School Gymnasium.

This was the first year in a very long time that I’ve been out of town for the Program – thank you to my sister, Heidi Weeding Karels, for videotaping the Program for me!  It was her first time – so through a couple of technical adjustments and seating positioning, the video does not include the complete program.  After editing and uploading the video, I sat and watched the complete video.  I had tears streaming down my face during the Memorial Day Address by Pastor Ailsa Harl (who has accepted a Chaplain appointment and I’m sure will be missed greatly by Ortonville’s Zion Lutheran Church!!)  I hope you take a few minutes to watch the complete video.  It truly provided an emotional and vivid picture of the cost that has been paid and will continue to be paid for our freedoms, here in the United States of America.

The Agenda for the Program is found below the video.


Thank you again, Heidi!  I am so thankful that I was able to watch this program.
