Thank you to all the brave men and women who gave their lives while serving our great country. We will never forget your sacrifice.

We are terribly saddened that we could not gather this year on Memorial Day to honor the memories of the men and women who died for our freedom, because of the pandemic restriction on public gatherings. We did, however, put together this video program for our community in hopes that on this Memorial Day and beyond, families would gather and take some time out to watch this short program. It is an opportunity to remember and appreciate our fallen soldiers.

Thank you so much to @Curt Simshauser of Curt Simshauser Photo/Cinema for putting this video together for us. Curt spent so much time on this project and did a fantastic job.
