Daily Life, Memorial Day by Joan Tavolott
Today is Memorial Day here in the USA when we honor those who gave their lives in service to our country. There are parades and ceremonies in most of the towns. I decided to go into Sayville to sketch their service which was supposed to begin at 11:00 according to the internet...wrong!
The service in Sparrow Park was already over when I got there, but there was a ceremony taking place in front of the Sayville Fire Department honoring those who served and I caught the tail end of it.
I sketched two members of the color guard and the memorial wreath.
Then I went over to tiny Sparrow Park and sketched the memorial there.
