Flag Day Celebration Cadiz Cemetery in Franklinville

The Ischua Valley Historical Society will host The Fourth Annual Cadiz Flag Day event on Sunday, June 10th at the Cadiz Cemetery.  The Ischua Valley Historical Society invites the public to join in celebrating our flag and remembering the sacrifices made by many in Her honor.  The public is invited to share in the festivities that will begin with a community picnic at noon.  

Hot dogs and beverages will be provided.  Please bring a dish to pass.  Come and enjoy an old fashioned picnic at 12pm. There will also be Old Time and Patriotic Music, a Flag Ceremony at 2pm, Speakers and Town Board Representatives will be there as well as Beverly Sterling Affinity - Past President Daughters of 1812. 

The Rushford Band will be there to entertain us with wonderful music from the past.  Students from Ellicottville High School will once again participate and sing in memory of the brave soldiers buried here.

Boy Scout Troop 1 will follow with a flag ceremony honoring the Civil War veterans buried at Cadiz. The Flag ceremony starts at 2pm.  In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln arrived at Gettysburg Cemetery to honor the thousands of Union men buried there.  The speech was only 273 words long, but many historians consider it one of the most eloquent speeches ever given. The ceremony at Cadiz will conclude with the reading of the Gettysburg Address.

Please take the time to join us in remembering the sacrifices made by the soldiers now resting at Cadiz Cemetery.
