Over the course of American history millions of men and women have answered the call to preserve and protect this nation.
All of them gave up a part of their private lives to help save the freedoms that we all enjoy today.
They left their friends and loved ones behind, sometimes for years to perform the duties that were thrust upon them.
Many left the peace and tranquility of home forever, giving all they had to give —their live — for us.
We set aside a time each year to reflect on those sacrifices, especially by those who have moved on to a higher calling.
A Memorial Day program will be conducted 10 a.m. Monday, May 25 at the Woodbury Lions Veterans Memorial Plaza on the City Hall Campus.
Visitors will witness a military presence through some of our servicemen and veterans. Attendees will have an opportunity to privately acknowledge those who risked their lives for their fellow citizens by answering the call during America’s greatest hours of need.
More than 150 memorial pavers will already be permanently in place and those who have purchased them can expect to receive donor certificates on that day.
If you have not purchased a paver, but would like to do so, be advised that any order received by May 1 still has a good chance of being engraved and installed by Memorial Day.
