Thursday April 29 at 9:30 Draper Street was closed to traffic, flag bearing citizens gathered along the street-sides and within moments, a parade came by. Coming down the street was a flag carrying Color Guard, followed by a white hearse and cars carrying family and friends of Ted Hess, the man being honored. The parade stopped briefly in front of City Hall where there was a 21 gun salute and playing of TAPS before continuing to the Kingsburg Cemetery.
Thank You Kingsburg Chamber of Commerce:
Thanks to the wisdom of the Chamber, this will be a more common sight. Active community members who served in the military will be honored in the same way. Several weeks ago, long time Kingsburg businessman and veteran Don Workman was honored this way. The Chamber felt it was a fitting tribute and determined to keep this new tradition going. By supplying memorial posters to place along the street, and distributing American flags for community members, the Chamber has encouraged a genuinely honorable act… recognizing Kingsburg’s great military men and women. Thank you, Kingsburg Chamber of Commerce.
There was a Memorial Procession for Maury Nyberg on May 5th at 9:30.
