The Mechanicsburg American Legion held a private, brief Memorial Day ceremony on Saturday morning, followed by members planting flags on graves in the Mechanicsburg Cemetery.
This was contrary to other years when the event is held on Memorial Day and features a parade and then a public memorial service.
That was not an option this year because of the guidelines surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, but the Legion still wanted to acknowledge those who have fallen in war. Thus, they decided on the private event Saturday.
