Memorial Day observed

A sea of red, white and blue waved across the burial grounds at Historic Christ Church in Weems this week in honor of Memorial Day. The church canceled its annual Memorial Day service amid COVID-19 concerns but continued with its tradition of honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the country. According to Robert Teagle, executive director for Foundation for Historic Christ Church, Charles R. Lawson of Highlander Studios in Kilmarnock filmed a trumpeter playing taps on the church steps and drone footage of the grounds. View the video at
