For Those who were with us on Memorial Day
I would like to thank everyone and anyone who was with us in Beaver on Memorial Day. All those who marched, rode in the parade, or stood on side of street and clapped, I thank you. I would like to thank Ray Litzinger and Rich Gillin for moving the equipment. There can't be a parade without our banner, flags, and rifles. Also, a thanks to Buddy Howe for stepping up with short notice to call cadence to the marchers. And whoever was in charge of the weather for that day,” a big HOORAH!”
Let us never forget why we were there on that day. Memorial Day is for all who came before us, what they did while they were here, and now they are gone. They paved the way for us, lead by example, and it's up to all of us to keep it moving forward.
“Together Then, Together Now” says it all.
