Trey Gerdes recites Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address May 30, 2022 at the Lennox American Legion Hall

Roughly 60 veterans and community members filled the Lennox Foreign Legion for this year’s Memorial Day service under a clear sky that ended a day chalked full of inclement weather.

Members of the Legion soldiered through some early issues with audio equipment to deliver the service that included the presentation of colors, a reading of war poetry as well as Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and a presentation of awards to local schoolchildren.
