Crosses to honor those lost this Memorial Day on courthouse lawn

Milam County residents are invited to place a cross on the Milam County Courthouse lawn in memory of their loved ones this Memorial Day.

The American Legion Auxiliary Post will have crosses available for pick-up at the Cameron Area Chamber of Commerce office. Everyone is invited to decorate a cross in memory of veterans, police officers and first responders who have passed away.

The crosses will be placed on the lawn during a Memorial Day ceremony at 10 a.m. on Memorial Day, May 29. The crosses will stay on display for 10 days.

Anyone placing a cross can come pick up the cross on June 8 or the American Legion will store it until next year.

Contact any Legion member or Jolene Cahill at (254) 697-8987 for information.
