16 May Upcoming Events: Memorial Day Commerations
It’s hard to believe that Memorial Day weekend will be here in a little more than a week. While Memorial Day serves as a great excuse for many Americans to enjoy a three-day weekend, I hope people will stop to remember the meaning and significance of Memorial Day. After all, Memorial Day is just a single day set aside in our country to remember the selfless men and women that have paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our rights and freedom. I’m not trying to sound trite or cliche when I say that patrons to the National D-Day Memorial recognize this sacrifice on any day they visit our monument to our nation’s heroes. However, we too want to pay tribute to our fallen servicemen and women around the Memorial Day holiday too, and we have two upcoming events that do just that.
Stars and Stripes Forever: Patriotic Concert

On Saturday, May 25, at 8pm the Jefferson Choral Society performs a stirring patriotic concert that will have guests on their feet celebrating the freedoms so many have fought and died to protect. The concert will include performances by the Jefferson Youth Chorale and Cantate and the Chorus of the Blue Ridge.
