Memorial Day events in East Texas

Chandler: The Chandler Cemetery Association will hold a service to honor fallen soldiers at 9 a.m. Monday at the cemetery on Old Tyler Road. Tom Robucks, pastor of First Baptist Church, will officiate, and Chandler Cub Scouts will present the American flag.

Whitehouse: Daniel B. Walker War Memorial rededication ceremony at 10 a.m. Monday in front of the Oak Brook Health Care Center, 107 Stacy Drive.

Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler, will be the keynote speaker.
