The annual Memorial Day program was held at the Perry Performing Arts Center on May 30. The program is a joint effort sponsored by Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2060 and the American Legion Post 85 of Perry. Commemorative readings were shared and musical presentations were held. The program was followed by the firing of traditional rifle volleys and the playing of taps. (Top) American Legion members and the VFW color guard fired the ceremonial gun salute.
