A Memorial Day ceremony in Mount Vernon returned in-person this year after going virtual in 2020 because of the pandemic

IOWA – The event drew a couple of hundred people to the Mount Vernon Cemetery to honor veterans who have died.

The turnout was even bigger than expected.

The virtual event went well in 2020, but people are happy to return to the normal format.

A group of around 30 local scouts placed American flags throughout the cemetery, including on the graves of veterans.

The flags serve as a reminder of what Memorial Day is all about.
