With great sadness in our hearts, but also with deep appreciation and pride for those service men and women who have fallen in defense of our freedom, the Bridgeland Community Supports Veterans, Inc. held its annual Memorial Day Ceremony at Pioneer Park in Lakeland Village on May 29, 2023. Scout Troops #156 and #329 provided an excellent presentation of the flags, followed by an opening prayer. Emilio Rodriguez and Walt Bohn gave brief speeches, and the national anthem and taps were played. With tears in their eyes, attendees named those to be remembered and tied memorial ribbons around the trees. It was a deeply moving ceremony.
