Memorial Park in St. James hosted a Memorial Day program Monday to honor all those who have served and given their life for this country.

“When the need was greatest, they stepped forward to do their duty,” said Erin Kobs, pastor at First Presbyterian Church, during her invocation. “No love is greater than that which gives itself for another.”

Butterfield also held a Memorial Day ceremony; with Brent Trickel as the featured speaker, the program was conducted in the Butterfield-Odin school.
