Seven flags wave proudly near the picturesque 16th green at the Harbor Hills Military Memorial. Our American flag takes its proper place at the forefront of the Memorial. The remaining flags represent branches of the U.S. Armed Forces: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and the newly formed Space Force.

It has been said that “our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.” Memorial Day reminds us to be good stewards, ensuring that we honor the sacrifices of our veterans and their families. Their sacrifices enable us to enjoy our freedom every day.

To honor our veterans, the Harbor Hills Garden & Women’s Club sells bricks engraved with your veteran’s name. Each brick is placed within a kaleidoscope of names and military emblems on the walkway of our Veterans Park. To purchase a brick, contact Shirle Mabie, dedicated chairperson at shirlemabie@gmail.com. Our Garden & Women’s Club continues to raise funds for any beautification and maintenance needed for the Memorial.

A special Memorial Day celebration will be held Monday, May 29 at Harbor Hills. Festivities include an 8 A.M. mixed flight golf tournament and a 12:15 dedication in front of the clubhouse. A traditional Memorial Day cookout awaits, complete with all our favorites.

Reminder! June 18th is Father’s Day. Celebrate with our Father’s Day brunch from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M. The buffet includes made-to-order omelets, carved prime rib and scrumptious desserts. For reservations, call 352-753-7000.
