Northwest Iowa — The continuing pandemic has caused issues with many things we have come to take for granted. The annual Memorial Day observances, services, and honors are among them.

At Ashton, the Ashton American Legion will be honoring our fallen on Memorial Day at 9:30 a.m. at the cemetery with a short public ceremony. Legion officials say the event will be entirely at the cemetery and they say they are not planning anything at the Legion. The service will be held, weather permitting. Mark Carlson with the Legion says that for those that can not attend, he will try to host a live feed from the ceremony on Facebook.

The Memorial Day Service at the Ocheyedan Cemetery has been canceled.
