2020 has not been as normal as most people would have hoped due to COVID-19.  Yet in the Melvern community this didn’t stop community members both young and old, from coming together Saturday morning, May 23, to help the Woodward-Belt-Hellman-Arb American Legion No. 317 and Ladies Auxiliary  prepare Melvern Cemetery for honoring all of our fallen veterans. Volunteers helped place individual flags on all veterans’ graves and then hung flags along state Highway 31.

Melvern volunteers gathered Saturday to place flags on veterans’ graves at the Melvern Cemetery.
