Babcock prepares for final Memorial Day as CVSO

She will never stop her Memorial Day weekend tradition of putting out American flags at a cemetery by her home near Manitowoc, but the end of Jane Babcock’s time as the Kewaunee County Veterans Service Officer is getting closer. Babcock will participate in Kewaunee’s celebration, which includes a 10:15 a.m. parade beginning at the high school before an 11 a.m. Memorial Day program takes place at the Kewaunee County Courthouse. Similar ceremonies are scheduled to take place in Luxemburg at 10 a.m. in front of the Bank of Luxemburg and at Legion Park in Algoma beginning at 11 a.m. Babcock says she has enjoyed her time being the Kewaunee County CVSO.

Babcock will officially leave her post in the middle of June when fellow Army veteran Rob Stearns takes over as the CVSO.
