Ever since our veterans were coming home from Vietnam the Running Springs Area Chamber of Commerce has held a short, but annul Memorial Day event. On Monday,May 28 at 11 a.m. plan to be there at the flag pole that is close to Hwy. 18 and the Coffee Shop and up the hill from Jensen’s Market on Hwy. 18. I am always out there setting up for the memorial celebration so I’m usually there at 10 a.m. One of the things that I love is when we start decorating the site many people driving by on Hwy. 18 honk their horns so they appreciate that in our small community we are honoring those who gave their best, and often their lives.
The service does not last long but it is something our community has done for many, many years to honor our veterans and those who have given their lives for this country. Children are welcome (especially those about 10 and over) so they can learn something about our history.
Please consider being at the flagpole and give honor to those who truly “gave their all” for their country.
