Memorial Day Picnic and Turtle Release

This year’s annual Memorial Day picnic was a lot of fun! Not only were the weather gods with us with a beautiful sunny day, the food, decorations, music and the company of friends all made the afternoon a success. Immediately following our picnic, we had a special turtle release where we released our two pet turtles, Bonnie and Clyde, into our pond.

On the morning of Memorial Day, the American Legion performed an emotionally charged flag ceremony complete with a 21 gun salute followed by the playing of Taps. Ben from dining services opened the ceremony with our National Anthem.

The afternoon was spent listening to some great entertainment while enjoying some delicious watermelon.
