The Herald-Star
Adena American Legion Post 525 veterans representing previous wars talked to the Buckeye West Elementary fifth-grade class on Tuesday. The post sponsored an essay contest titled “What Memorial Day Means to Me” and awards were presented. On hand were, from left, Leanne Sliva, from the Afghanistan War; Allie Berze and Seth Richards, essay contest winners; and Roger Sliva, Vietnam: and back, John George, World War II; John Kendziorski, Vietnam; James Chanoski, Korea; Elijah Foldi, Iraq; and Frank Zamski, Vietnam. Abigail Bilinsky also is a contest winner. Sliva read the story behind taps, and pupils received a copy of the story. Each student was presented a flag and wooden holder. Memorial Day services in Adena will start at 9 a.m. Monday with a community ecumenical service at St. Casimir Catholic Church. Fallen soldiers will be remembered with a roll call, and a poppy presentation will be held. A parade will follow, beginning at the Hanna Avenue post home. A service will be held at the post home about 11 a.m. with Sgt./Evangelist Jack Ernest as guest speaker. The post will be in charge of services at the Olive Branch Cemetery at noon. Ernest will speak there as well -- Contributed
