Participants will meet for a 7 a.m. breakfast at the Legion Hall in Morse Bluff, then divide into two groups. One group will lead services at Fleming Cemetery at 8 a.m. and at Cedar Hill Cemetery at 9 a.m.

The other group will take part in services at National and Catholic cemeteries near Linwood at 8:15 a.m. and at Dawson Cemetery at 9 a.m. Paul Shavlik will be the featured speaker.

The two groups will reassemble at Killian Cemetery at 10 a.m. and Woodland Cemetery at 11 a.m.

There will be a veteran doing a reading at Woodland Cemetery. The 2016 Girls State representative, Dakota Chapman, will be
the featured speaker at Fleming, Cedar Hill and Killian cemeteries.
Kyle Krula, Desirae Sindelar, Luke Dolezal, Dylan Eman-
uel and Savannah Sindelar will serve as buglers at these services.

There will be a Mass at 8 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Cedar Hill, and a 10 a.m. mass at Woodland Cemetery led by St. Charles Catholic Church.
