Reminder: Brooklyn Centre Memorial Day Service

without comments

I just sent this email out to many of our friends and neighbors in the Cleveland area.  Although I posted about the Memorial Day service here a few days ago.  I decided it couldn’t hurt to do it again

I hope you are having a relaxing, enjoyable weekend.  here in Brooklyn Centre we will be taking time to honor and reflect on why we celebrate this holiday.  Please join us.  For 33 years, we have been gathering at the Brooklyn Centre Burying Ground to honor the dead and buried Revolutionary War thru World War II veterans at the cemetery.  Led for many years,by neighbors and friend, Rick Nicholson, we will again have this service.

In addition, we will be using this memorial service to begin our year long celebration of Brooklyn Centre’s Bicentennial.  Through the coming months, we will be letting you know of events in and around Brooklyn Centre which will celebrate our long history in Cleveland.

The ceremony begins at 11:00 am.  There will be music, the placing of flags on the graves and veterans, and time to visit with friends and neighbors.

Tim says I should mention that Rick Nicholson is a member of the Cleveland Grays, and even in the hottest weather, he dons his wool uniform and beaver hat.  Get there early if you want to see it because tomorrow is supposed to be a scorcher.
