It’s hard to believe it’s the month of May already; how time does fly by!
Many noteworthy days occur in May but two holidays stand out in my mind as being very important:
Mother’s Day on the 8th of May - This is the day where we honor the central role of mother in the family. I’d like to extend my warmest wishes to all Mothers, Grandmothers, Foster Mothers and Stepmothers for a day filled with love, happiness and most of all Family.
Memorial Day on the 30th of May - In the Fall of 2021, I had the opportunity to visit the memorial dedicated to WWII in Washington DC. (I am proud to say my Dad served during this war as a pilot in the Army Air Corp). If you get a chance, I would urge you to see this memorial as well as the others dedicated to those who served in the wars fought by America to preserve our Freedoms. Take time to read and ponder the words inscribed on these memorials. These words give us a glimpse into what war was like. Each memorial marks the price of freedom. Some paid that price with their lives; some paid with lifelong physical and/or emotional hardships. But that heavy price was paid so we can continue to enjoy our Freedoms. On this date, we will celebrate a day of remembrance to honor the many people that stood up for our Liberty throughout the years; let’s never forget them. After a 2 year hiatus, the Memorial Day parade will again be held in Hatfield beginning at The Veteran Memorial at Broad & Market Streets in the Borough and proceeding to the American Legion Post on Koffel Road. Check the Borough website for all planned activities relating to the parade.
