Algoma community commemorates Memorial Day

Hundreds of people gathered at Legion Park in Algoma Sunday morning for a special ceremony commemorating Memorial Day. After holding a virtual celebration last year, the Algoma community returned to watch the ceremony in person under partly sunny skies and near-perfect conditions along Lake Michigan. The celebration included Mayor Wayne Schmidt addressing the crowd and the Algoma High School band performing and bagpiper Thomas Johnson playing Amazing Grace. American Legion Post 236 Commander Tracy Steiner introduced Senior David Ibarra, a senior from Algoma High School and scholarship recipient who shared his thoughts on the impact military veterans who paid the ultimate had on our country. A short parade through downtown began the celebration before the formal program at Legion Park. Mayor Schmidt shares the significance of holding the Memorial Day ceremonies again in front of spectators this year.
