Dear Friends -
Memorial Day is next Monday. Please mark your calendars for this event.
Sunshine will present a Memorial Day Tribute on Monday the 29th
Everyone is cordially invited.
Memorial Day is a holiday originally called Decoration Day. It was designed to honor Armed Forces who gave their all during service to our Nation. And we are especially grateful to these families. We shall celebrate and give thanks.

I realize that Memorial Day is a day to honor those that lost their lives serving their country but personally I feel there are not enough days in the year to honor ALL veterans so with that being said I have made a bulletin board in Retzlaff Hall, for Memorial Day, for anyone that wants to display pictures, letters or any memories of their loved ones that have served or are now serving. If you want please let us know who these special veterans in your life are. Also make sure that you put your name and number on the back so I can get them back to you. Hope to see many of you there at the parade, the gazebo ceremony and the hall for potluck.

Memorial Day has been and is a special day to honor all military members who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Aside from decorating Veterans graves, parades and services are often held but after WWII, the purpose broadened and now recognizes all those who have served in all American Wars.
The National Remembrance Act - Moment of Silence - pause at 3pm local time. (We will incorporate this with the program at the Gazebo).
Sunshine is a proud community and there are 2 parts to our Memorial Day program - the Veterans Tribute (Golf Cart Parade & Gazebo Program) and the Pot Luck which will follow shortly thereafter in Retz Hall.
There is a sign up sheet in the Library.
For the Parade and Gazebo part, I am looking for volunteers to help with several facets. The Pot Luck Team are doing their thing at Retz Hall.
John and I need Flag Bearers to carry the Branch Flags and 2 escorts with wooden rifles (that don't shoot). Hoppy will help with sound. John will help with the Flag ceremony.
I need 2 Neighborhood Watch volunteers to mark the area by the Gazebo from where the Flags will enter.
We appreciate your 2 CENTs and can have a brief meeting on Tues or Weds the 16th and/or 17th of May. Let's meet at the Office and go from there.
Please call me for any questions 956 245 1276 Thanks

Memorial Day (Monday May 29th) is the unofficial start to summer so it's time to celebrate! We're starting by having a golf cart parade around the neighborhood at 2:00 pm followed by a short ceremony at the gazebo. We'll all meet back at Retzlaff Hall at 4:00 pm for a potluck. There is a signup sheet in the library for those of you who want to bring food. Also there's going to be a memorial board that you can use to put up pictures of your loved ones who have served in the past. Please put your name and number on the back to I can get them back to you. I'll send out a notice when the board is ready for you to start putting up your memories.
Hope to see all of you there.
