The Big Canoe Chapel Bells will ring for one minute at 11:00 am on Memorial Day, May 28 at the opening of the Memorial Day Service at the Big Canoe Chapel. All within hearing distance of the bells are encouraged to observe a minute of silence during the ringing to commemorate the U.S. Servicemen and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our country.

The program speaker will be Tommy Clack, decorated Vietnam veteran who was pronounced dead after traumatic injuries from a rocket-propelled grenade. His miracle recovery and lifetime of service are inspirational as is his speeches.

Since 1970, Clack has been recognized over 200 times at the city, county, state and national level for his leadership and accomplishments. He describes his mission as a public speaker as a way to help audiences gain a greater appreciation of God, self, family, community, country and that America is the exceptional country among all on Earth.

His speeches are cautionary but positive and uplifting, sometimes humorous. You don’t want to miss hearing him. The Chapel will be open to the public at 10:30 a.m.
