York County Annual Memorial Day Celebration
By Jim Newton

YCMem imageYork Hall was the setting for this year’s Memorial Day celebration. Members of the Fifes and Drums of York Town played as the audience filed into the upstairs chambers of York Hall. A standing room only crowd witnessed the proceedings as Uncle Sam tolled the bell and members of the York High School Junior ROTC smartly marched into the chamber and thus began the Posting of the Colors flag ceremony.

Terry R. Taylor, SMSgt, USAF (Ret.) sang a heart-felt rendition of the National Anthem which was followed by the Pledge of Allegiance led by the Historical Committee. Colonel David L. Ward, USA (Ret.) recipient of 2 Bronze Stars gave the Memorial Day message. Shortly thereafter, members of the DAV Chapter 13 and Comte de Grasse Chapter, NSDAR presented the wreaths honoring our fallen soldiers. Taps were played and the benediction by Rabbi Eric Carlson closed out the ceremony.
