During World Wars I and II, people in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Germany planted Victory Gardens (also called war gardens or food gardens for defense) as a way to reduce the demand on the public food supply and support the war effort. Learn more about this civilian effort on the home front in The History of Victory Gardens.
Consider planting your own Victory Garden this Memorial Day weekend, in honor of those who served and those who are currently serving our country!
Everyone at St. George Village wishes you and your loved ones a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend. As always, our front lawn is filled with American flags honor all of the brave men and women in our nation’s service who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect and preserve our freedom. We invite you to drive by and see this beautiful sight!

Every year in observance of Memorial Day, the front lawn of St. George Village is filled with American flags. The flags honor all of the brave men and women in our nation’s service who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect and preserve our freedom.
The flags, kindly donated by Roswell Funeral Home, are also part of St. George Village’s annual spring fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association. Those who live and work at SGV and their families and friends can “sponsor” a flag in memory or honor of a loved one for a small donation — the proceeds help fund ongoing Alzheimer’s disease research.

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!
