Honoring and Remembering Our Fallen Heroes
Posted on May 27, 2013 by Stacy Anthony
Today, Memorial Day, we remember our nation’s fallen heroes, the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect and preserve our freedom.
Every spring, St. George Village holds a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association — residents, their families and SGV staff members can “Sponsor a Flag” for $5.00, in honor or memory of a loved one. Each sponsored flag is planted on our front campus during Memorial Day weekend, and a list of those who sponsored flags and the people they honor is on display.
This year, SGV raised $1,395 for Alzheimer’s research and 279 flags were placed on the front lawn during the dedication service.
We thank our friends at Roswell Funeral Home, who generously donate the flags for our annual Memorial Day service!
