A new handmade podium will debut at the Memorial Day ceremony in West Bend. The podium was crafted by Jeff Slais from Wisconsin House Woodworks. His right-hand man Hank also chipped in on the project.
The podium is designed with a POW MIA stained glass piece in front along with a special box for a folded American flag.
The podium will be used during the ceremony in the Old Courthouse Square.
This year Gold Star Mother Liz Kryst will be the guest speaker at the event which will get underway around 11 a.m. after the Memorial Day procession.
