Memorial Day tribute…

The headstone of Meeker’s George G. Tagart at Highland Cemetery is decorated with an American flag to designate him as one of the many veterans buried in the local cemetry. The Meeker VFW performed ceremonies on the bridge over the White River in Meeker Town Park and then proceeded to hold another remembrance at Highland Cemetery.
