The American Legion Post 83 led a Memorial Day ceremony at the Merced District Cemetery on Monday to honor the fallen, as well as Blue Star and Gold Star Mothers.

The event featured the Post 83 Honor Guard, the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 83, the American Legion Riders and the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 83.

Local Gold Star Mom Terry Ramirez helped with the presentation of the folded flag. And Harmony Valley Chorus sang the “Star Spangled Banner,” “America The Beautiful” and “God Bless America.”
