Memorial Day


Today, Memorial Day, is the day we take time out to honor and remember those who died in wars serving our country.  Families remember their fallen loved ones and veterans remember their fellow soldiers who did not return home alive.

Memorial Day has its roots in the civil war and started out as “Decoration Day” and was a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. May 30 was selected because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. Congress made it an official holiday in 1971 with the National Holiday Act and it was expanded to include all who died in our nation’s wars.

Let us remember our departed veterans in our thoughts and prayers and let’s work to ensure that America’s freedoms and blessings are available to all Americans.

Dewey McClain, Rep Hugh Floyd, Rep.  Pedro Marin , Rep. Karen Bennett and a huge crowd of wonderful Democrats!

We want to also extend a huge thank you to our organizers, Claudette Forbes, Cheryl Williams and George Williams and all those who came early to setup and stayed afterwards to clean up.
