Memorial Day is One Week Away...

Monday, May 29th is Memorial Day. Communities around the country will be saluting those soldiers that have served and died defending our freedoms. Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day, a day when the graves of those veterans who died were strewn/decorated with flowers.

 

 

"We cherish too, the Poppy red

That grows on fields where valor led,

it seems to signal to the skies

That blood of heroes never dies" 

~Moina Michael
