Riding Bikes in ParadeMemorial Day is fast approaching. It is a Holiday that I very much look forward to celebrating. While not a veteran, I’m most appreciative of those men and women who have served our country and provided the freedom we enjoy today.

For as long as I can remember I have walked in the New Columbia parade, first with my children and the last several years with the grandchildren. The parade ends at the cemetery and a brief service is held. Pictures of veterans who have lived in White Deer Township are displayed.

This coming Monday, May 26th take time to attend a parade and commemorative service and be sure to thank a veteran.
