While many will celebrate Memorial Day on Monday, one local church was doing just that Sunday as Legacy Church puts on a tailgate party to celebrate Memorial Day every year.
At Sunday’s party, there were plenty of activities for everyone. Music, slip and slides, bounce houses a softball game and of course plenty of food. While it is a good time for everyone there, they also remember those who served and gave their lives for this country.
“I think its important in the day that we live in that people understand what they did for our country,” Pastor Legacy Church John Gardner said. “We are in a pivotal time in America today, and there are a lot of decisions being made in Washington, and we need to honor our men and women. I have a son overseas.”
This year the tailgate party was also a going away party for some of the members of the church.
One is currently a master sergeant in the Air Force and being transferred.
