The dawn of the Memorial Day Holiday has a special meaning and remembrance to the many Veterans and their families that reside in Bridgewater. Members of the Veteran’s committee officially lowered the American flag to half-staff at 6:04 AM. Service flags from all branches of the military were added for Memorial Day remembrance at 11:45 am after a brief ceremony.
A community-wide cookout followed in the afternoon that included a DJ, games, poolside fun, and of course an All-American Cookout!
Let us never forget the sacrifice of the men and women who served, as well as their families who also made a sacrifice, so that this country, and others around the world, might live free.
