Elmwood Celebrates Memorial Day with Service
ELMWOOD – Cass County residents honored their fellow Americans Monday morning at a Memorial Day ceremony in Elmwood.
People gathered under sunny skies at Elmwood Cemetery for a 35-minute event that featured songs, speeches and salutes. The ceremony took place on a site where more than 175 veterans have been laid to rest. Veterans from the Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War are buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
Retired Msgt. Brenda L. Brockhoff of the Nebraska Air National Guard raised the American flag at the beginning of the ceremony. She served in Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm and Enduring Freedom. Elmwood-Murdock seventh-grade student Rylee Hogue sang both the national anthem and “God Bless America,” and Pastor Earlin Shanno of Elmwood Christian Church provided both the invocation and benediction.
Local Girls State representatives Candice Brockhoff and Ashtyn Cooper both read historical documents at the event. Brockhoff read General Logan’s Order Number 11 and Cooper read the Gettysburg Address.
Robert Clements played “Battle Hymn of the Republic” on his trumpet following Cooper’s presentation. He also joined Bruce Pratt in an echoing of “Taps” later in the ceremony. Master of Ceremonies Jeff Johnston also delivered a speech in memory of local veteran Alan D. Farmer.
Nebraska National Guard State Public Affairs Officer Lt. Col. Kevin J. Hynes delivered the keynote speech. He talked about the contributions World War II veterans provided in their hometowns after returning to America. He also talked about the importance of remembering all veterans and the sacrifices they made for their fellow citizens.
