Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph veterans of Baraboo honoring soldiers who have passed by putting flags up  at our local cemetery.

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.
