Memorial Day in Protivin

It was wet and cold, but the spirit in Protivin was strong as ever for the
2013 Memorial Day activities.

Ever since most can remember, Memorial Day has always been a
special time in this town of around 300 people in Northeast Iowa.

We ran across people who came special for this day from Missouri,
Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin, as well as many locations
in Iowa.

Enjoy the photos on this page.
Several people were in town
representing the late
Jerry and Rosie
.  They ran the meat market in
town for several years.  Jerry was a vet
from Protivin and Rosie was a member of
the Protivin American Legion Auxiliary
(county president).  Rosie passed away
this past winter
