Staff WriterMay 17, 2019

The Memorial Day weekend signifies the kickoff to the Summer season for many people. It’s a perfect three-day weekend for enjoying a barbecue with family and friends, relaxing by the pool or maybe a short trip to Galveston Island. But Americans need to remember why they observe Memorial Day; a patriotic holiday in which the country honors the men and women who sacrificed their lives serving this country.

This month, The Village of River Oaks unveils its Wall of Honor for Veterans. The community is proud to recognize residents who proudly served in the United States armed services and to the commitment of “liberty and freedom for all.” The Wall of Honor offers a sense of pride for its residents who are veterans, but more importantly, it’s the community’s gratitude to veterans for their service to the country.

On Memorial Day, The Village of River Oaks will recognize its fallen soldiers and veterans to express appreciation and dedication to defend, love and protect the country. Poetry readings will be shared by residents expressing their appreciation of veterans’ commitment; along with the presentation of the flags. Finally, The Village of River Oaks will honor Memorial Day with a moment of silence to honor for all veterans who have served and all who serve this country today.

Following the ceremony, residents and guests will celebrate by enjoying a buffet prepared by the River Oaks Culinary Team to complete a perfect Memorial Day!
