Memorial Day is a day of remembrance observed every year on the last Monday of May. This national holiday is set aside to honor all Americans who died while serving their country. This year the local Veterans Club will host a Memorial Day ceremony that will include the Incline High School JROTC Cadets performing as the color guard, an invocation from Rabbi Mendel Cunin, a bugle performance by Todd Lowe, a bagpipe performance by Sean Cummings, and the singing of the National Anthem by Sheila Lejon.
I think it’s important to take a short break from our Holiday routines to remember why Memorial Day exists, why it’s a National Holiday, and to reflect upon the fact that freedom isn’t free. Please come out to Burnt Cedar this year to celebrate and honor not only those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country but also to honor their surviving family members. The Veteran’s Club is asking attendees to begin arriving at 9:30 for a short ceremony that will commence at 10:00 am.
God Bless America!
