Smile / 'm on Candid Ca era News from Pioneer Lodge by Sherry Gossett, Social Service Designee After Memorial Day speaker Pastor David Moseley of the Coldwater Assem- bly of God Church remarked that the Western Star editor had not run any photo- graphs of Taps being played at recent Memorial Day services, several such shots were made available to The Star this year. Above, Star Editor Dennies Andersen is "caught in the act," holding the bugle. It was difficult to select a photo from those submitted by Diane Thompson and Richard Bean, but this one by Mrs. Thompson was selected because it shows less apparent strain on the belt of the bugler. Andersen, who has played his Taps on his trumpet at military funerals and Memorial Days services since 1967, "retired his lips" a few years ago, and a trained eye can see the small CD player nestled away in the bell of the bugle he held Monday. It plays a recording of Taps being played at Arlington National Cemetery. On Wednesday, May 25th a group of ladies were able to en- joy a drive to Greensburg. While they were there they were de- lighted to shop at the Family Dollar store. Some of the resi- dents went to Crown Hill Cem- etery for the Memorial Day Ser- vice and were able to decorate and remember loved ones that have passed while they were there. Two of the residents who went were veterans; James Th- ompson serving in World War II and Bob Currier served during the Korean War. Several resi- dents had visitors throughout the weekend and were able to get out and observe memorial Day with their family and do some Marjorie Lee decorating at different cemeter- ies. The residents were served a picnic-style lunch on Monday. The dietary department fixed hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill and made a couple of salads and baked beans. I think the residents would eat grilled ham- burgers every day. As America celebrates Memo- rial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation's wars. John M.
