Memorial Weekend held several celebrations throughout the county this year but there were also many memorial services held in remembrance of fallen soldiers.

Crosses were donated to cemeteries all over the county.

Memorial services were held in Paden City and Sistersville where family and friends could gather together to pay respects for those who have died in an effort to protect the freedom of our country.

The weather was perfect and the ceremony was very heartfelt. The Chaplin of the VFW recited “The Legionnaires Prayer” which was very appropriate for the occasion.
