| MEMORIAL DAY - MONDAY (29 MAY 2017)
Memorial Day address given by President Reagen:
“It is, in a way, an odd thing to honor those who died in defense of our country, in
defense of us, in wars far away. The imagination plays a trick. We see these
soldiers in our minds as old and wise. We see them as something like the
Founding Fathers, grave and grey haired. But most of them were boys when they
died, and gave up two lives: the one they were living and the one they would have
lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and
grandfathers. They gave up everything for our country, for us. And all we can do
The Lake Minnetonka VFW Post invites everyone to attend Memorial Day
celebrations in the local area. All veterans are urged to attend the Excelsior
Grade School program and then march in the parade with Post members. Wear
part of military uniform if you still have available.
