The Mahoning Valley Chapter SAR celebrated Memorial Day by participating in Canfield’s parade on Monday May 29th.

Events included a 10 AM service at the Village Green Gazebo hosted by American Legion Post 177.  The Canfield Mayor and Township Trustees addressed the crowd. The featured speaker was Richard Duffett, a 1981 United States Naval Academy graduate.

A march then took place to Canfield East Cemetery, where a twenty-one gun salute and wreath laying took  place. Reassembling, the march proceeded to the War Museum and the Wall of Honor where a new plaque, donated by Congressman Bill Johnson, honoring 4 new honorees was presented.

During the proceeding, the Mahoning Valley Chapter Color Guard and members fell-in to honor the veterans who gave their all.
