I have heard that there is not going to be any ceremony for Memorial Day this year at the old Odd Fellows Cemetery down on Riverview Road in Riverton. This is the second year in a row they won't have anything there, if my memory serves.
This was one of the best parts of Memorial Day in the Fremont County area. The people who fixed up that old cemetery did such a nice job on it.
Also, there is so much history there. It was Riverton's first cemetery, and there is a Civil War soldier's grave in one corner of that cemetery. IR00;think it is the only one in Fremont County.
I will have fond memories of the patriotic ceremony there over the years it took place. This Memorial Day, let us not forget the Americans who rest there.
I want to thank the volunteers who improved the Odd Fellows Cemetery and for the ceremony they put on there for as long as they were able.
