The Artesian Memorial Day program was well attended.  Commander Karen Lambert was the MC for the program.  Karen Klinkner read the prayers.  Clair Lambert, Tom Fridley, and Bill Austerman carried the flags and did the gun salute.   Catherine Bechen, Austin Schmit, and Marcus Mernough  read several readings. Jonathan Linke was the Memorial Day speaker.  Jonathan is the son of Paula and Henry Linke and he attends SDSU.  He gave a very nice Memorial Day message.  Grandchildren of Tom Fridley and Karen Lambert carried the poppies while Tom read the names of those members who had given the ultimate sacrifice due the wars. The American Legion Auxiliary served the lunch.
