SPRINGFIELD, NJ - Grey skies and rain couldn't keep the spirit of Memorial Day away within the hall of Raymond Chisholm Community Center.
 
The audience heard poems and songs of America from the "American Creed", to Lee Greenwood’s “Proud to be and American”, and a “You’re a grand Old Flag”.

The speeches were made to highlight the importance of what Memorial Day is about and means.  The soldiers who have died are to be remembered not just for their memory and sacrifice, but also  for their friends and family and fellow solders who fought along with them.

The rain was still pouring down at the end of the ceremony and everyone was invited to the high school for free hotdogs and drinks from the Elk's Club.  Most importantly everyone was invited to the updated Veterans Memorial Park across the street to honor Springfield’s Solders and remember their contribution to America's Freedom.
