Dear Friends,

It seems I just spoke about our welcoming the month of May and now we are near its completion.  This coming Monday we celebrate our nation’s Memorial Day.  We gratefully, as Americans, recognize the commitment of America’s military services, honoring those who lost their lives while defending their country.

Citizens of our great nation remember these faithful men and women in many ways. Many towns have parades and ceremonies on Memorial Day and some events conclude with a memorial service.  It is a day to proudly show our American flag. It is an opportunity to thank a veteran(s) we personally know, one we might recognize by their dress or their sharing of their service to our ... Read More »
