Memorial Day 2014

There was a large crowd for the 2014 Memorial Day ceremonies in Weston Cemetery.
 The honor guard consisting of veterans stood along Bunkum Road.
 Mayor Wood gave the speech, recounting how Memorial Day emerged from people's desire to honor the dead of the Civil War.

On the patriotic theme, there are some very good pictures of Jasper County eagles on the SJC Facebook page.
