A Memorial Day Tradition

Every year the City of Excelsior hosts a Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony. Over the years we’ve had a kid or two in the parade as Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Brownies, Girl Scouts etc. This is the first year I’ve had office space on Water Street (as traditional a main street as you’ve ever seen). I started my day from there.


My office is in the small building in the middle of the picture.


Here is a view to the left from my building doorway. That’s Excelsior Bay of Lake Minnetonka in the distance.


This is a view to the right…..


And the parade begins….


And continues, my daughter Sophie is in the Girl Scout troop in the last shot…


And the finale at the cemetery with some good words and some nice music.

Thanks to all families who have lost loved ones to war. Loved ones who gave their lives protecting.
