Observe National Moment of Remembrance on Memorial Day 2023

Honesdale, PA (May 9, 2023) — “Honor Memorial Day’s true meaning” is the message from staff at the Honesdale VA Outpatient Clinic for this May 29th. The outpatient clinic which provides primary and women’s health to eligible veterans is once again promoting participation in “The National Moment of Remembrance” and asking for the community’s support.

Taking part is actually quite simple. In keeping with the December, 2000 law signed by then U.S. President Bill Clinton, all Americans are encouraged to pause for a moment at 3 pm – no matter where they are on Memorial Day to honor those who lost their lives while serving in the armed forces.

To help spread the word, employees across all Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC) sites will be asked to wear and distribute campaign buttons with the slogan “Memorial Day, 3 pm, Take a Moment”.

Jolene Pryzant, LPN care manager at Honesdale VA Outpatient Clinic, is leading the drive for a second year. “We’re happy to have so many of our co-workers across WMCHC and Wayne Memorial Hospital supporting our efforts again,” she said explaining requests to restock supplies were met with enthusiasm from office managers.

Anyone interested in receiving a free campaign button, may call the Honesdale VA Outpatient Clinic at 570-251-6543. Honesdale VA Outpatient Clinic is part of Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers. Visit www.wmchc.net for more information on all services.
