Letter to the editor: Memorial Day
memorial day ceremony
Monday, May 25, 2020 was Memorial Day, that day set aside to remember and honor those who gave their lives in service to our country. Locally this Memorial Day was markedly different, there was no formal ceremony, no speeches, no gathering of veterans to honor the fallen and no smartly dressed JROTC Cadets replacing the flags. The markers and flags that have been traditionally placed on streets throughout Dawsonville were reduced to those around the historic courthouse.
