On Monday, May 31, around 70 people gathered at the Cloverdale Cemetery in recognition of Memorial Day. 

The gathering leaned into a sense of normalcy, after the Sons of the American Legion held a private cemetery ceremony last Memorial Day, due to social distancing restrictions. 

During the ceremony, American Legion member Al Delsid gave a speech about a Cloverdale veteran who died in World War II. Delsid wrote about the veteran, Second Lieutenant Richard Wells, in an article for the Reveille this year. Delsid went on to recognize the rest of Cloverdale's fallen, with American Legion member Bob Cox ringing a bell in memory of every person named.
