Let me take this opportunity to remind everyone about the City of Wyoming Memorial Day Ceremony at Veterans Memorial Garden on Monday at 7 p.m.  Come and join many local veterans and community members as they honor those who served our country and gave the ultimate sacrifice.  I also encourage you to spend a few minutes strolling down the “Walk of Honor,” where many in our community have chosen to recognize a loved one with a brick in their memory.  This event serves as a small honor in appreciation for all the men and women who have served our country.
