2018 Memorial Day Guide

John J. Flanagan

May 18, 2018

As a community, we have the solemn responsibility to come together each year and honor the men and women of our country who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation.  Without their bravery, heroism and enduring sacrifice we would not enjoy the freedom and the way of life we work so hard to preserve each and every day.  We owe an eternal debt of gratitude to all generations of our fallen heroes and their families.

I encourage you to join me and thousands of our neighbors as we once again pay tribute to our heroes this Memorial Day.  The information below will help you find a parade, observance or ceremony in your neighborhood.

 God bless the United States of America and all of our brave servicemen and women.
