Conservatively Speaking

State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

I'm pleased to participate in Memorial Day ceremony

Veterans issues

Memorial Day is this Monday, May 25, 2009. I am honored once again to be a guest speaker at the Memorial Day ceremony in New Berlin.

Here are details from New Berlin Memorial Day Committee Chair Dave Ament:




Monday, May 25, 2009 is Memorial Day.

This is the only day of the year that we as a Nation have set aside to honor the men & women that gave their lives for our Freedom. We must never forget the ultimate sacrifice made by them through out the history of our Nation. All too many of us have lost sight of the true meaning of this most important day. The men and women whose heroism we both celebrate and mourn must never be taken for granted. We must do everything we can to ensure that the generations that follow will fully appreciate the sacrifices that so many have made and the sorrow their families have had to endure so that the rest of us can live in relative peace and security. 

Ament Industrial Truck and Moorland Auto Repair are proud to join the Hoeppner-Horn Bros. VFW Post 5716 & Highland Memorial Park Cemetery to make Memorial Day mean even more to the Citizens of New Berlin.

The ceremony will start at 11:00 a.m. with the VFW making their ritual march to the Veterans Memorial. VFW Post 5716 Commander Brian Barker and former Commander Don Hermann say a few words. Other guest speakers will include Mayor Jack Chiovatero and State Senator Mary Lazich, along with Miss New Berlin, Danielle Ackerman. We are very thankful that State Representative Mark Gundrum has completed his tour of duty in Iraq and once again will be able to join us.

Members of the VFW Post will perform a rifle salute. Alderman Ted Wysocki has arranged for a Fly Over, weather permitting. New Berlin, Holy Apostles Boy Scout Troop 93 will help direct traffic, hand out programs & flags for those who attend. There will  be a balloon release with memorial tags. Ament Industrial Truck and Moorland Auto Repair are providing over 500 U.S. flags to be donated and handed out to those attending this Ceremony. The event will end with a cannon shoot. The cannon supplied by Glen Porter of Highland Memorial Park Cemetery. The New Berlin Community Band will perform patriotic music during the ceremony. The event should last about 45 min. to 1 hour.

Please join your New Berlin neighbors in honoring their memory.

Alderman Dave Ament
