Memorial Day this year was somewhat unusual with temperatures reaching near the ninety-degree mark. In many past years, attendees donned coats and jackets and faced cold, windy and rainy weather, but not this year. Dress for the day was shorts, t-shirts or sleeveless tops.

The program in the Walnut Grove Elementary gym began at 9:30 Monday morning. The Walnut Grove American Legion and Auxiliary presented the colors, after the elementary band played Forward March, directed by Luke Nelson. The band then played the National Anthem, and Paul Olson lead the Pledge of Allegiance. Olson then introduced the speaker Pastor Chuck Swanson serving English and Saint Olaf Lutheran Churches.
