Singing Star Spangled Banner

For many years I have had the honor of singing the Star Spangled Banner during the Ceremony by the American Legion Post 451 to the Main Street of Boulder Junction, WI. This year there wasn’t a parade because of The Covid Pandemic, however as you see in the video there was an amazingly timed vintage plane fly over.......I love this small town of 700 people nestled into the center of The American Legion State Forest where I lived and raised my children for 25 yrs. This State Forest is a true gem with the 2nd largest concentration of Kettle Lakes in the World. These kettle lakes were formed as the Wisconsin glacier receded . Because this area is so fragile the community has been vigil in protecting its lakes and Natural beauty, by encouraging silent sports so everyone can hear the Loons Calling. Not to leave out that Boulder Junction is also the Musky Capital of The World.
