Honoring Our Heroes


This Memorial Day, let us take a moment to honor the sacrifice of our brave military service members and keep their families in our prayers. Memorial Day is a day of commemoration and sorrow, a day to honor our heroes and reflect on their tragic loss. Their sacrifice helped preserve our freedoms and the liberties that we hold so dear.

This day also allows us to educate each generation on the historical impact of our military, appreciation for those who accepted the call of service, and encourage pride in our country.

On this day and every day, we honor the fallen and thank those who have served and continue to serve our great nation. It is with this sentiment in mind that I invite you to attend some of the events taking place in our region.
