JUNE 2021 NEWSLETTER


Presidents Message

Wow! It's been a hectic month so far and we're not done! The May meeting was great and everyone enjoyed learning about the Community Based Philosophy of our Prescott Valley Police Department and all the great community projects they participate with. THANK YOU PVPD for all you do! As our Caring for America project for May, we collected funds for the Prescott Valley Police Foundation which assists our PVPD with items that are outside the budget. We raised $400 for the Foundation, so a huge thank you to everyone!

The Prescott Valley Days Parade yesterday was a blast! We had so much fun and gave out all our small American Flags to children along the way. We heard lots of cheers and applause!

Next up and still in this month is the YCCA Home Show on May 22nd. We will be there selling raffle tickets for our gold jewelry set AND more importantly, registering voters as part of the Arizona 51 Project.

Although this is technically the June Newsletter, it will arrive in May and well before MEMORIAL DAY which is Monday, May 31st. Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. The purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made that ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.

The specific origin of Memorial Day or Decoration Day, as it was first known, is unclear. After the Civil War, America’s need for a secular, patriotic ceremony to honor its military dead became prominent, as monuments to fallen soldiers were erected and dedicated, and ceremonies centering on the decoration of soldiers’ graves were held in cities and towns throughout the nation. After World War I, the day expanded to honor those who died in all American wars. In 1971, Memorial Day became a national holiday by an act of Congress: it is now celebrated annually on the last Monday in May.

Memorial Day Services may be attended in Prescott at the Historic Citizens Cemetery, 815 Sheldon St from 9am – 10am. 

Guest speaker will be the Honorable Ken Bennett.

Period costume is permitted. 

WHY IS THE POPPY A SYMBOL OF MEMORIAL DAY?

In the war-torn battlefields of Europe, the common red field poppy was one of the first plants to reappear. Its seeds scattered in the wind and sat dormant in the ground, only germinating when the ground was disturbed, as it was by the very brutal fighting of World War 1. In 1915, John McCrae, a Canadian soldier and physician, witnessed the war first hand and was inspired to write the now famous poem “In Flanders Fields”. He saw the poppies scattered throughout the battlefield surrounding his artillery position in Belgium.


IN FLANDERS FIELDS

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up your quarrel with the foe:

To you from falling hand we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.


(Proper flag etiquette for Memorial Day is to fly your American Flags at

half staff until noon to honor our fallen heroes and then raise the flag to full height until sunset)

We will elect 3 at the June Meeting. Then, it's your job to recruit our leadership for the coming term (Jan 2022-Dec 2023) which means meeting officers & members and getting to know them. A report of your proposed slate will be presented by the Nominating Committee at our October Meeting and elections will be held in November. Please consider volunteering when I ask for some hands at our June Meeting! Thank you!
