Memorial Day weekend plans? We understand that it’s certainly a great time to fire up your grill and enjoy some quality time with family and friends, but don’t forget to respectfully remember why it’s called Memorial Day. This year, you and your family can begin the pre-summer season with several different Memorial Day events and commemorative ceremonies around North Atlanta. Monday is the special day where we, as a nation, honor the sacrifice of America’s fallen soldiers. Remember to greet any and all military service personnel by thanking them for their service. It’s easy to show your support this Memorial Day weekend with Memorial Day ceremonies around the Northern Atlanta area and here are a few of them.
On May 30th from 10:00-11:00 am, the city of Milton is holding its ninth annual Memorial Day ceremony. Speaker Lieutenant General James Helmly, a decorated Vietnam veteran who is also Chief of the Army Reserve, will lead the ceremony. General James Helmly was responsible for the mobilization of 147,000 Army Reserve soldiers in support of the global war on terror and has been inducted into the Infantry Hall of Fame. It’s important to be a part of your community on this very special day and there’s no better way than to attend a Memorial Day ceremony. Stop by our new WestFall community if you’re looking for a wonderful place to buy a new home this Spring or Summer.
The Alpharetta City Hall will hold a Memorial Day tribute on May 29th. Starting at 9:00, the program includes the singing of the national anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance, a Keynote Speaker, Laying of the Wreath, a 21 Gun Salute, and most importantly “Taps” performed by Alpharetta High School junior, Daniel Gelber. New homebuyers should see our established luxury community named Hearthstone while you’re in the area.
Join the American Legion, Marine Corps League, and other local veterans groups to honor those who fight to keep us free. On Memorial Day join local veteran groups for a special service of remembrance in The Park at City Center. There will also be an appearance and performance of the Cobb New Horizons Concert Band which will make this ceremony even more heartfelt and meaningful. We have two communities nearby if you and your family are in the market for a new home. Visit Olde Heritage or Harmony on the Lakes this weekend.
Thankful For Their Sacrifice
Memorial Day is the time for us take a few minutes out of our lives to appreciate and thank our armed forces for everything they do and have done to protect us. If it weren’t for the armed troops protecting the land we hold dear, we wouldn’t be able to provide you and your family with our quality, custom built homes. Whatever you find yourself doing this Memorial Day weekend, we hope you remain safe and happy. From all of us at Sharp Residential, we remain thankful and respectfully honor the lives of those who sacrificed all in their service to America. Thank you!
