We're getting very close to Memorial Day.  Let's not forget the reason for the holiday, shall we?  It's a lot more than mattress sales.  Let's remember the fighting men and women AND their families.  And let's try to give the families a fun day in the process. 

A loyal Sean and Richie listener, Justine Crowley-Duncan wrote me recently.  Here is a part of her actual email:

I am the Veterans Chair at the Mechanicville Stillwater Elks. I love what I do!!  As part of the role of Veterans Chair, I’m involved with other Veterans Chairs in the Northeast organizing a FREE Military Family Fun Day and Picnic.

We have vendors who have donated their time or supplies; Albany Devils coming; Pony Rides; carnival games; a roaming photographer, DJ; face painting, food!!  All donated!

So come on, folks.  Let's support this cause.  Here's a lady donating her free time, LOVING what she's doing, and trying to help out military families.   Here's the info:

Military Family Fun Day and Picnic on June 2, from 11 -4 at the Clifton Parks Elks.  This event is open to all military families.  Please RSVP to 225-0778.

We salute you, Justine and all of the military families that you are trying to serve.
