LANSING | At Lansing's 120th Anniversary Celebration earlier this month, members of the Lansing Veterans Memorial Ceremonial Honor Guard wore period costumes as during the presentation of colors.

Authentic uniforms were worn representing each war that the United States has been involved in since the Village of Lansing's incorporation in 1893.

The celebration was held at the American Legion Post #697 with a reading of the papers of incorporation, a slideshow of photos of Lansing over the past 120 years, displays by the Lansing Historical Society and cake.
