0 Comment


Memorial Day 2011 is a time for remembrance of those who’ve served and those who’ve paid the ultimate price…keeping us free.

While for some Memorial Day may mean a long week-end, for retailers it’s reason to promote a sale, for me it’s also a time to remember and say thanks to those who have served and are now serving along with the families they leave behind. That’s why I’m sharing this list with you now, a list of events throughout the SoCal.

  • Anaheim ~ Anaheim Cemetary ~ Memorial Day Program, Monday the 30th, 11:00 a.m. 1400 E. Sycamore Ave.
  • Brea ~ Memory Gardens in Brea ~ 455 W. Central Ave. Brea and the “Avenue of Flags. It’s been an event I’ve personally addended many times over the years. The beautiful American Flags are usually put up by local Boy Scouts. It’s a real sight to see.
