A thought on Memorial Day:

Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Both holidays were established to recognize and honor the men and women who have worn the uniform of the United States Armed Forces. But Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday in May, was originally set aside as a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle.

On this Memorial Day please take a moment to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.

13173845_221567828225477_3733397663556941446_n“The purpose of Hope Restored Creswell is to help families with school-age children whose homes are in need of refurbishment in order to create a clean start and an environment that is more conducive to learning. Our focus is on families who own their own homes, but due to life circumstances or hardships have been unable to carry out repairs or improvements that are needed for a better quality of life.

Through a partnership with Creslane Elementary School’s principal, counselors, and teachers, we have identified two families whose homes we will refurbish on May 20, 21 & 22. These local families are receiving an “Extreme Home Makeover” style renovation.”
