Memorial Day 2017 – How Do You Recognize?

Elk Creek, Valley Creek, Stanley Lake Creek and Stanley Creek just west of our cabin converge on Memorial Day Weekend. Original size: 30″ by 70.” Note: the fence line was built by a volunteer group led by my friend Ed Cannady.

Memorial Day 2017.  Is it simply an extended weekend or a day to recognize those who died while serving in our country’s armed forces?
