Memorial Day Service 2009

Posted on May 26, 2009


The High Rock Tower Association held a Memorial Day Service on Saturday, May 23 at 11:00 AM. The Robert L. Ford School Glee Club sang “The Star Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America” for the group of about 50 people who attended. After the firing of rifles into the air, a member of highschool band played “Taps” and the mayor laid a wreath in front of the American flag while five young soldiers stood in formation, heads held high.

As I reflected on the sacrifices soldiers like these have made and are making for our country, I remembered something that somebody said at the Highlands Coalition meeting the Monday before. “The least we can do for the men and women who fight to defend our country is fight for our neighborhoods.”
