Sun hours are when the sun casts shadows. Twilight is before and after the sun hours when the world is visible without artificial light.



There are no formal Memorial Day programs or ceremonies planned  at the Alvo, Brethren or Belmont cemeteries. However, those who maintain them will have small flags on veterans' graves and large flags US and military displayed. Pat Umland and Kay Hopp clean up the Alvo Cemetery. Bobby Hanes and Derek Dreamer install the large flags there and Jerry Hardnock places the small flags on veterans' graves. Jerry places all flags at the Brethren Cemetery. Someone unknown has placed small flags at the Belmont Cemetery for several years. If you know who they are, please thank them.
