Grand Horizons observed Memorial Day in its community center on May 30. About 85 people showed up for a luncheon. The picnic included chicken, cole slaw and potato salad, with ice cream for dessert. All the food was provided by the social club.
A short music medley started off the celebration that honored all the branches of the military. Following this, there was a moment of silence for the deceased heroes. Then, of course, all the people that were in attendance sang “God Bless America.” This lunch/picnic was hosted by Rich and Chris Fulton, and Terry and Mim Gardner, along with Tita Mauk helping out. There were also people who helped with the setting up and cleaning up. Our thanks go out to all of them.
Since we were unavailable, I spoke to Sandy Lindke and Chris Fulton. Between the two of them, I received the above information, plus the fact that flags were put up along the sidewalk throughout the development to commemorate Memorial Day. This was a day to celebrate and to go all out, and that is exactly what Grand Horizons did.
