Memorial Day Parade held at Willowville

The Willowville Elementary School’s tradition of celebrating Memorial Day continued this year with its annual patriotic parade.

Waving American flags amid a colorful sea of red, white, and blue, the more than 500 students at Willowville Elementary honored the men and women of our country who have given their lives for the rest of us to live in freedom on the school grounds May 23.

“This is a very special day for all of us,” said fourth grade student Mitch Worden. “It is our way of thanking the brave and dedicated soldiers who died so we may live.”

This is the 31st year that the school has held the Memorial Day parade.
