Memorial Day 2019

May God bless the families who lost soldiers in service to our country.  Let us be thankful for the freedoms that their sacrifices have provided.

The federal government proclaimed the third Monday in May as Memorial Day as part of the National Holiday Act of 1971.  However, much of the country began honoring fallen servicemen from the Civil War in 1868 on what was then known as Decoration Day.

Enjoy this beautiful day!
