Adults and children on Sunday gathered at a Pillager park to honor the memory of Alayna Ertl, the 5-year-old Watkins girl abducted from her home and whose body was found later in rural Cass County north of Pillager. The event, hosted by Brooke Rooney, was highlighted by the release of numerous balloons into the air. There also was music, cookies and lemonade.
