Join us for an Old-fashioned Memorial Day Observance on Monday, May 26, 2014.
The 2014 Observance will feature the Prospect Hill Preservation Brass Ensemble playing traditional music, Boy Scouts leading the Pledge of Allegiance, reenactors in Civil War-era uniforms presenting the colors and a 21-gun salute, and a tribute to local businesswoman Anna Wilson.
The program will be Prospect Hill Cemetery and the Moving Frontier, about some of the earliest settlers in Omaha, 1854-1857. It will be presented by Trustee and local historian David Harding, and is based on the new brochure by the same name, written by Trustee Harl A. Dalstrom, Ph.D. The program and brochure are dedicated to the memory of long-time Trustee Orville D. Menard, Ph.D. (1933-2014).
Music begins at 10:45 a.m. Parking is available. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket. No dogs, please (the 21-musket salute frightens them).
Books and refreshments will be available for purchase.
