The Jerry Skrivanek VFW Post No. 8185 in Port Deposit marked Memorial Day with two ceremonies: the first at 10 a.m. May 26 at Harmony Chapel, where post leaders honor their namesake at his graveside each year; and the second at 11 a.m. at Memorial Park in town, where a marker thanks all servicemen and women.

The ceremonies featured a prayer service and demonstrations by the Boy Scouts and honor guard.
