Memorial Day 2015

vetmenWe are halfway through the Memorial Day weekend…a time set aside to remember those who gave their lives in defense of our freedom.

Originally known as Decoration Day, the first celebration took place in Waterloo on May 5, 1868. The name was changed to Memorial Day in 1967. And our own state of New York was the first to declare it a holiday.

We salute those who have fallen, and keep their loved ones in our prayers and thoughts.  Hopefully some day, we can all live in peace.

We remember.
