Memorial Day MontageWritten by Valerie Alker
Many southwest Floridians enjoyed some time off Monday in honor of Memorial Day. Some went boating or beaching or shopping, or to the movies. Many others turned out at numerous Memorial Day services to honor the nation’s fallen soldiers. Hundreds of people – many aided by walkers, wheel chairs and canes – attended the annual day of Remembrance at Fort Myers Memorial Gardens. Producer Valerie Alker was there and prepared this audio postcard.
We heard from Dorian Gullage, Janine Deems, Bob Scott, Clem Concadora, Mary Lou Lock, Ralph Coltman, Chaplain David Goins, Jonathan Frantz and Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott. Lori Jerabeck sang the National Anthem.
