On May 23rd, Post 41 visited the Wee Angels Day Care Center at Duncan Memorial United Church in Berryville and presented a program on Memorial Day and patriotism. About fifty pre-school students attended the program. Commander Mike Linster, Past Commander John Harris, his wife Karen, and granddaughter Emma Cohen conducted the program. This is the fifth consecutive year we have provided this service to Wee Angels.

John Harris began the program by explaining who veterans were and the importance of honoring deceased veterans on Memorial Day.  Emma Cohen led the students in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Karen Harris read a children’s story about what Memorial Day means. Commander Linster presented each student with a small U.S. Flag. The students were marched around the room to patriotic music.
