Memorial Day comes a little early for the employees of Astria Regional Medical Center. Their seventh annual Memorial Day Celebration and Flag Dedication Ceremony will take place Thursday, May 24 at 12:15 p.m. in the front entrance of the hospital.
Memorial Day is Monday and, while it is a time to honor and remember those who have died in service, it has also become another guise for scam artists to take from people who are currently serving or have served our nation -- especially elderly veterans.
As we pause to give thanks, take inventory of our lives and count our blessings this Thanksgiving holiday, it's always appropriate to be aware of those around us who might be suffering or do not have their most beloved around any more.
