Wellsville Honors Its Veterans

Wellsville once again honored its veterans in an impressive Memorial Day ceremony.  Organized by the Wellsville Memorial Council it is sponsored and supported by Wellsville’s veteran organizations, businesses and many private individuals. 
The annual observance began at the Soldier’s Memorial in the 4th Street Square, a parade down Main Street and concluding ceremonies at the Newlin Memorial Chapel in Springhill Cemetery.  The VFW Tommy Mackall Post served breakfast and later a light lunch following the ceremonies.  Pastor Darlene Zanders offered the prayers and Mayor Susan Haugh represented Village officials.  The sound system was furnished by the Croskey brothers and the Wellsville High School Marching Band provided musical selections.  Members of the Wellsville Police Dept. gave a 21 gun salute and Wellsville Fire Fighters provided an escort.  Columbiana County Commissioner John Payne, pictured here, was the keynote speaker. 

Wellsville’s observance is the finest in the valley.  For more information on the Memorial Council contact President Don Brown at the Wellsville VFW Post.
