Memorial Day is a day to . . .

May 25, 2011

Weather concerns aside, Memorial Day is the historic start of getting outside and doing stuff – the kickoff to summer fun with family and friends. And, that is all fine and dandy – we would like to remind folks, however, to take a moment and reflect about Memorial Day.

Take a moment to thank those made this these days possible – if you see a veteran, take a moment to say, “thank you.” Tell your children what this holiday is about. If you are not sure yourself, we suggest reading Jim’s Jottings, on the next page. A veteran of World War 2, Jim Sherman, Sr., former publisher of The Lake Orion Review, has it down succinctly – we don’t need to repeat him!

We hope everybody makes it out to the annual Memorial Day parade and to the ceremony afterwards. Have a safe holiday and remember what the day is about – dpr
