Resurrection Cemetery observance planned
Veterans, family members and friends are invited to attend a flag-raising ceremony and tribute at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Veterans Memorial in Resurrection Cemetery, 83rd Street and Quivira Road, Lenexa.
The American Legion Band will provide a patriotic musical prelude at 1:30 p.m. The brief ceremony to follow will include the flag-raising, patriotic music, a tribute to Veterans, prayer, a 21-gun salute and playing of taps. Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7397 will provide the color guard, and small flags will be available for gravesite decorations.
Lt. Col. James Ludwikoski, pastor of Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Shawnee, will give the tribute to veterans.
The Veterans Memorial at Resurrection Cemetery features monuments and flags representing the five branches of the Armed Forces and the Merchant Marines. Family members and friends can remember and honor veterans by arranging to have their names engraved on the granite walls adjoining the monuments. Adjacent to the memorial is a section dedicated for burial of veterans and their spouses.
