Free community safety programs

 R
        SVP West Valley invites area community organizations to par-
        ticipate in June “National Safety Month” activities, by sched-
        uling one of their three safety programs. The topics are:
“Seniors Against Investment Fraud” (SAIF); “How to survive the first
seventy-two hours of a major disaster”; “Preventing Falls: Jack fell
down but you don’t have to”.
 These topics are intended to help people focus on ways to be more
aware of scams, utilize everyday items around the home to build an
emergency survival kit, and take a fresh look at common hazards
around the home. There is no charge for these safety programs that are
presented by trained and experienced RSVP volunteers.
 Any group interested in making arrangements for one or more of these
programs is invited to call the RSVP office at (909) 482-0355.

                                                              During the first celebration of Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at

                                         of the more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried in the cemetery. This 1868 celebration was
                                         inspired by local observances of the day in several towns throughout America that had taken place                   General John Logan

                                         and Carbondale, Ill. In 1966, the federal government, under the direction of President Lyndon
                                         Johnson, declared Waterloo, N.Y., the official birthplace of Memorial Day. They chose Waterloo—
                                         which had first celebrated the day on May 5, 1866—because the town had made Memorial Day an

to be celebrated the last Monday in May. (Veterans Day, a day set aside to honor all veterans, living and dead, is celebrated each year on
November 11.) Today, Memorial Day is celebrated at Arlington National Cemetery with a ceremony in which a small American flag is
placed on each grave. Also, it is customary for the president or vice-president to give a speech honoring the contributions of the dead and
lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. About 5,000 people attend the ceremony annually. Several Southern states continue to Cilvil War, War of 1812, WW1

an important reminder of those who died in the service of their country.

AAA predicts gain in
Memorial Day travel


 A
          AA projects 34.9 million
          Americans will travel 50
          miles or more from home
during the Memorial Day holiday
weekend, a slight increase of 0.2
percent - or 100,000 travelers -
from the 34.8 million people who
traveled one year ago. The Memo-
rial Day holiday travel period is
defined as Thursday, May 26 to
Monday, May 30.
  "Memorial Day travel experi-
enced a gain of more than 14 per-
cent in 2010, and this year we
expect to add slightly to that gain
due to an increase in air travel and
an improvement in the overall do-
mestic economic picture," said
AAA President and CEO Robert
L. Darbelnet. "Some travelers will
compensate for the higher fuel
costs by cutting other areas of their
travel budgets."
  AAA's projections are based on
economic forecasting and research
by IHS Global Insight. The
Boston-based economic research
and consulting firm teamed with
AAA in 2009 to jointly analyze
travel trends during the major hol-
idays. AAA has been reporting on
holiday travel trends for more than
two decades. The complete AAA /
IHS Global Insight 2011 Memorial
