The Lt. Col. David L. Stricker Camp, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, invites the community to a Memorial Day service at Old Drawyer's Church Cemetery in Odessa Monday, May 28 at 11 a.m.

There will be a graveside service (weather permitting), a wreath laying at a Civil War soldier's grave, and a volley by Civil War soldiers to honor all who have served our great country.

Guest speaker will be local author and historian Jeff Biggs.

In case of inclement weather, the church will be open for the service.

The cemetery is located on the southbound U.S. Route 13 about a half-mile north of the intersection of Routes 13 and 299.
