Memorial Day events, memorials scheduled in Livingston County this weekend

HARTLAND – In honor of her brother, who was killed in the 1953 Korean War, Hartland Home and Garden Club member Marilyn Scherler has maintained the Blue Star Memorial in Hartland Cemetery for more than a decade.

“I do it for him and the community and the club,” said Scherler.

Scherler, who has been a member of the club since 1990, is being joined by fellow member Twyla Green to preserve the memorial, which was dedicated in 2004.

Green, a club member since 1998, estimates that she has been helping to preserve the memorial alongside Scherler for more than 10 years.

“I like flowers so it’s nice to see more flowers in the cemetery and flowers make people happy so the more flowers the better in the cemetery and to honor veterans,” Green said.
