 Buffalo Turns Out For Memorial Day Observances

Buffalo residents again turned out in good numbers to participate in the Memorial Day Observances on Monday.

The Parade of Veterans of all wars began at 9am and marched to the Veteran's Memorial on the corner of Fort and Main Streets, then continued down Main Street to the Clear Creek bridge for the Navy Mother's Ceremony.

The services were then concluded at Willow Grove Cemetery.

Pastor John W. Orwig gave the Invocation, which was followed by the Pledge of Allegiance and General Logan's Orders.

The Gettysburg Address was then given by Robert McBride, Spec. 6, US Army.

State Representative for House District 40, Mike Madden, gave this year's address, speaking of the courage, dedication, and selflessness that all veterans displayed while serving.

Peggy Sillivan, with the American Legion Auxiliary, read “Flanders Field,” and pastor Orwig finished with the Benediction.

The services were concluded with a performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” “Taps,” and the traditional volleys from the firing squad.

The crowd dispersed from there to enjoy the remainder of the weekend.
