Memorial Day

It's Sunday morning. The sun is shining. Croton Pond is calm, save for a few fishing boats motoring to their favorite fishing holes. Truly a beautiful morning! Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a day originally set aside to honor our country's Civil War dead. Many years, many wars, have passed since our first "Decoration Day" in 1868. Amidst all of the events your weekend holds we hope you'll find time to share stories and share blessings.

And while stores entice us with must-have sale items, grills await their first big firings of the summer season, flowers await planting... please take a moment to remember all of the men and women who sacrificed greatly that we might enjoy the freedoms we have.

Thank you for visiting our site. We welcome your comments.

Welcome summer. Thank you veterans. Thank you families of veterans.

Laura
