Veterans Day

I was wondering what goes on in Cedar Vale on Veterans Day. Is there a memorial to the Veterans? I know I have relatives from the area that were veterans. I wish I could see the country there and get a better feel for it. I feel so disconnected. Any stories....James

James. I go in about an hour to the Baptist Church. There will be a chili and soup supper and then there will be a program in the auditorium to honor the vets. The Legion honor guard will be there in uniform and there will be some speaking and singing of patriotic songs. 5 0r 6 specials will be part of it.

Thanks Don, I have been trying to find a picture of the Veterans Memorial in Cedar Vale. I have found a small picture of the proposed layout but no picture of it. I know they were selling bricks through the high school but haven't seen anymore about it. Or is this something else? Also I am trying to find a road map of the County so I can figure out where my Granparents lived.

Google maps would work for that purpose.

James - There is to be another printing of The Chautauqua County History Book. You can read a lot about Cedar Vale and the residents in this book. Email Freida Wells at freida49@yahoo.com to see about purchasing one.
