Thank you to all for Memorial Day service

For Memorial Day services on Monday, I was out at the G.A.R. Cemetery in Snohomish — what a beautiful site. The grounds were in mint shape. With the bad weather it was wall-to-wall people.

The Snohomish High School band and the Marine Corps ROTC Rifle Squad was outstanding. Special thanks to Biff Reading and his crew that made it a special day. Thanks to the baseball team that helped with the flags. Thanks to the VFW and the American Legion to make it a nice day.
