Weathersfield News May 23, 2016
As Memorial Day approaches I hope we all remember why we have a day off. While most people get ready for the first weekend of summer with BBQs, garden planting, and a freedom from work day, some folks gather to remember all the service people who fought bravely for our country during many wars. During your long weekend, stop for a few minutes and reflect on the real reason why we have this day set aside and what the real price of freedom is.
Last Wednesday, I was in the audience of "Good News From Around The World" a play written and performed by the folks at Zack's Place in Woodstock.
