On Saturday, May 27, immediately following the Rainbow Lakes Memorial Day Parade, everyone gathered in the ballfields off Oakdale Road to honor the memory of our fallen soldiers.
This Memorial weekend is one of our most solemn patriotic observances. We are gathered here to honor those who died in service to our nation. History resounds with the thousands of battles on land and sea and in the air that echo the glory of their valiant deeds. We are the beneficiaries of their great gift. Because of them, our lives are free. Because of them, our nation lives. Because of them, our children will grow in a free land, said Bill DeGrosky.
He continued by saying, “Since we met last, Sgt. James Vigilante, former Member of the Council and a good friend of Rainbow was suddenly taken from us. He was always proud to take part in this ceremony and I hope he is with us today in spirit,” said DeGrosky.
