Rain affects Memorial Day ceremonies

The Memorial Day ceremony at Penwell-Gabel Cemetery was cancelled Monday due to incliment weather. The ceremony was to have included a ride through the grounds by the American Legion Post 421, a wreath laying ceremony and remarks by Senator Pat Roberts and Topeka Police Chief Ron Miller.

A Memorial Day ceremony at Rochester Cemetery at 9 a.m. was held, but moved indoors due to the rain.

Other area ceremonies included one at the Kansas Veterans Cemetery at Fort Riley – Manhattan and another at the Post Cemetery on Huebner Rd. We will have more on these ceremonies on Kansas First News at 5p.
