MEMORIAL DAY


     Memorial Day, I went to Republic.  There are 3 Haglund graves there, plus 2 little Olson girls I’ve “adopted”.  They died in 1902, several days apart.   I put flowers on all.  When I get ahead, I want to buy a grave there for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    I also went to Durfee’s… who now own the Haglund home (I lived there in the 40’s).  The house was moved to the “new location”, when they reopened the mine.  They did such a nice job of keeping the home pretty much the same, while making it really beautiful.

      Since the weather was iffy… there was no parade downtown…. the Memorial Day ceremonies were held in the high school at the new location..  The long list of veterans went on FOREVER!

     I took pictures all around town … & on the drive there & back.
      This is the Republic museum; …   I spent several hours there
