“Memorial Day is set aside to remember with gratitude all those who nobly served and gave their lives to defend our democracy. Our community and our nation owe these fallen men and women a debt that can never be repaid. May we all take time to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. This year, may we all evoke that selfless spirit during our celebrations by limiting our gatherings and adapting our activities to protect the health and lives of others in our community,” said Mayor Dan Horrigan.
