Not sure why, but for some reason Towns/Cities are not having Memorial Day Parades like they used to ...they are becoming a thing of the past :( It's a shame. Memorial Day is a time for us to say THANK YOU to our servicemen. I always try to thank them when I see them. They put their lives on the line, for my freedom, for our Country, and I am very thankful for that. It's also a time to honor those who gave their all for us, and did not make it back home :( We almost lost our parade here in Aiken, but thanks to one of our City Council members, Gail Diggs, and her team, we still have it, and it's a big one! Many thanks to Gail and her team, and their vision, for keeping our parade alive.
Did you know that there are only 2 towns in SC that still have Memorial Day Parades?!! Does your town have one? Please comment :)
