Ceremonies worthy of Norman Rockwell
Once again Jamestown and its citizenry came out to present our town with a Memorial Day parade and ceremonies worthy of Norman Rockwell. The organization of it all was stellar this year and reminded us all of why we celebrate the day. I extend my thanks and my congratulations to the VFW and the American Legion for all the work that went into its planning.
To everyone who had a hand in these events, you deserve to be proud of what you offered to the town and to your country.
Last November I publicly chastised the new Town Council for not participating in Veterans Day ceremonies. This time they all attended and came up with a float as well. I want to personally commend them for taking the criticism to heart and turning out for this event. It was duly noted.
To the speakers, I want to commend you all on being both poignant and brief. You gave our young people, who participated, great lessons in what it means to be a part of our American culture. Bravo!
