Wondering What you can do to thank your heroes on Memorial Day?

News from Bayway Homes Seabrook Community: SEARIDGE

It’s not just a BBQ holiday!

The “Memorial” in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us who are beneficiaries of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Often we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively remember our ancestors, our family members, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our friends who have given the ultimate sacrifice:

  • by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.
  • by visiting memorials.
  • by flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.
  • by flying the ‘POW/MIA Flag’ as well (Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act).
  • by participating in a “National Moment of Remembrance“: at 3 p.m. to pause and think upon the true meaning of the day, and for Taps to be played.
  • by renewing a pledge to aid the widows, widowers, and orphans of our falled dead, and to aid the disabled veterans.

ANOTHER WAY YOU CAN HELP!

Bayway Homes is an active member of Bay Area Builders Association which established a non-profit organization in 2005 called “ Support Our Troops” (BABASOT’s) It’s mission is to provide custom made homes to wounded and disabled veterans and the widows of the fallen in an effort to get their lives back on track and become productive members of their communities. BABASOT partners with corporate sponsors, individual contributors, and volunteers.

BABASOT is in need of BUILDERS from across the nation to build homes for America’s war wounded. DEVELOPERS to donate lots or sell them to us at cost so we can build homes. BUILDING SUPPLIERS to donate materials to build the homes and YOU AMERICAN’S across the nation to hold an event in their home towns.

One of my favorite ways to help here in Houston, is attending the Annual Bands for Brothers & Sisters concert. This year it will be held July 11th at the Pasadena Livestock Show & Rodeo grounds. 100% of the proceeds goes towards building homes. This years headliner is Ted Nugent.

Have a safe and memorable holiday!
