Take Time to Honor is our way to remember the brave military personnel who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. This three day event is a solemn occasion to commemorate their bravery. We would be honored to have YOU join us and become a part of this touching community tribute.



I pray that our Heavenly Father

and leave you only the cherished memory of the
loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours,
to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom.
-- Abraham Lincoln, November 1864
