Members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir visited The Highground recently.
Approximately 700 people visited The Highground Veterans Memorial Park in Neillsville on June 19, as part of The Mormon Tabernacle Choir's visit to central Wisconsin. After a morning program in Black River Falls, the choir and their associates came to The Highground to have lunch, catered by M&M Catering of Neillsville, and tour the park. A skit was performed during the lunch portraying the history of the Mormon culture in our local logging past.
Before leaving The Highground, the choir gathered around the main flagpole and delighted the crowd with a few beautiful songs. It was a great day at The Highground.
The Highground will hold an Independence Day ceremony at 10 a.m. July 4. The guest speaker will be Sgt. 1st Class Kevin L. Henderson from Fort McCoy. For more information, call 715-743-4224.
