Remembering the Meaning of this Weekend….

This weekend we will be remembering all the brave men and women who gave their lives so we could live free in the greatest country in the world. Thanks to them you  will be enjoying that cookout, family get-together, parade, fireworks, whatever… They will not…. Let’s not get caught up in all the festivities that we forget the real meaning of Memorial Day.

THE “STEP UP AND CLEAN UP” EFFORT

Let me remind you again about this challenge, and refer you to my posts of May 1st and 3rd.  Your club could win a Coinmaster detector, compliments of White’s Electronics.  All you have to do is help out your local community, and promote your club in the process. How? Simply by adopting a park or a stretch of highway and/or shoreline to clean up on a regular basis.

The guidelines….Send a newspaper clipping or email a link to a television blurb about your club’s “Step Up and Clean Up” program. It must tell about or show your club actually at work,  cleaning up your adopted area, and it must be dated after May 5th 2013. Send it to….

“Step Up and Clean Up”, White’s Electronics, Inc., 1011 Pleasant Valley Road,

    Well said….we owe a big debt of gratitude to our fallen brothers and sisters for the ultimate sacrifice they made for our freedom.

    Peace to all.

  2. Let’s hope too, that the meaning of the Day won’t be lost on the wretched politicians either!

    Stay out of the malls, and try to live without your iPhone for a day. Spend quality time with your loved ones, because life with them is always too short.
