Wise-Reed Funeral Home of Eupora hosted its first Memorial Day veterans tribute balloon release on May 26.
Mayor Dan Burchfield opened the program, and Arey Wilson sang the national anthem and “God Bless the USA” as participants released balloons with the names of local veterans attached to them.
Marine veterans and Bro. James Hill of the Eupora Church of Christ was the speaker.
“We want to thank all who attended and look forward seeing everyone next year on Memorial Day,” owner Willie Reed said.
