If you live in an apartment in Garner, NC maybe you are wondering how you can incorporate the spirit of Memorial Day into your weekend. Memorial Day commemorates U.S. service men and women who died in the military service. It is a holiday many of us spend doing family gatherings, backyard BBQs or enjoying the day with friends and family. However you choose to celebrate Memorial Day in Garner and Raleigh remember to honor those who have lost their lives for our great freedoms.
Here are two ideas.
Wreath Laying Ceremony
Please join the men and women of the Tar Heel Detachment, Marine Corps League, as they remember those service members that gave their lives for their country in a wreath laying ceremony on the north side of the Capitol Building. Patriotic Music begins at 11 am and the Ceremony will start at 11:30 am.
At the North Carolina State Capitol on Monday May 27th, from 11 am-12 noon.
Observe the national moment of silence
At 3 p.m. locally, take one minute to pause and reflect. Encourage those around you to do the same. It is a perfect way to refocus, remember those who lost their lives for our freedom and bring some new perspective to the day.
Whatever you do, be sure that you have your flag displayed on Memorial Day -- it is appropriate to fly it at half-staff on this day of remembrance.
