The first of two major events in Iola to recognize veterans is right around the corner. Memorial Day will be observed at Iola’s Highland Cemetery on Monday, May 26.
Memorial services start at 11 a.m. and traditionally draw a crowd, including many veterans. It is a time to recognize those deceased who served the country.
Iola Municipal Band will play and representatives of veterans groups will place colors at the memorial spire in the veteran section of the cemetery. A speaker will be announced later.
