Veterans putting up flags on memorial day 2019

Every year,  Baraboo puts on a really fantastic Memorial Day celebration.  Starting at 9 a.m on May 27th, 2019 there is an event called “Flowers on the Water,”  where the public is invited to drop flowers into the Baraboo river as a memorial to men and women killed in battle.  There is a speaker, a salute to the deceased and the High school Choral group sings.  If you haven’t gone to this, I highly recommend it!

At 10 a.m, there is a brief procession to the courthouse square where the BHS band will play and there will be a Veterans  classic car ride.

 

 

At 11 a.m, Walnut hill cemetery will host the memorial day ceremony.  Once again, the BHS band will perform,  there is a reading, placing of wreaths, a featured speaker, taps and salute to the deceased and singing of the national anthem.
