"Memorial Day 2018"

My fellow Chapel Hill Leads Group Members.

I hope that you take a moment this Memorial Day to Google any web-site regarding Memorial Day and that those who have children at home encourage them to read about what that day means to our country, or to watch a movie such as D-Day or others.

With respect to those whose lives were taken in the cause and spirit of what our great nation stands for, I offer this brief passage;

"We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue."

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
