ST. HELENA — Well the veterans did it again.
Despite the rain, despite covid-19, despite the fact that other local units did not go out, the American Legion Stanley Anderson Post 31, did venture out to make this year’s Memorial Day special. May 25, The Stanley Anderson American Legion Post went to the local cemetery sites to honor those loved ones who lost there lives.
When it was time for the veterans to take a break, the St Helena 4-H Eagles Club was ready to honor and serve our local vets. Although things looked very different this year due to covid-19, the children were very excited to be present for our veterans. The club had to stand back and wave at the vets and tell them thanks for their services as the entered and exited. Many of the kids wanted to jump in and actually serve the coffee and snacks, but knew we needed to practice social distancing. We were thankful to be able to get a few pictures with our local vets, from a distance, of course.
This event gave the 4-H group the opportunity to see our local veterans and to thank them for their services.
The St. Helena Eagles 4-H club wanted to make sure members of the American Legion Stanley Anderson Post 31 knows, they appreciate all they do.
