Memorial Day Weekend Events On Long Island
"... And if words cannot repay the debt we owe these men, surely with our actions we must strive to keep faith with them and with the vision that led them to battle and to final sacrifice."
- Ronald Reagan
We are thankful to all those who served and gave their lives for our freedom. To honor those who served, there are events and services on Long Island including the popular Jones Beach Air Show. We wish everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day and cheers to the unofficial start to summer.
