Albany - No work. It's all play Monday at the Parks at Chehaw. Church members from New Life of Albany join together in fun and fellowship. Fellowship that wouldn't be allowed if it weren't for those who died to protect our freedom.
Preacher Martin Schmaltz says, "The aspect is that freedom is really not free. For anybody to have freedom, somebody's got to be willing to pay the price."
A price that church members understand. "The spiritual viewpoint is for us to have freedom of sin and things of our lives, that came with the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. In the natural, we understand that the service men and women gave their lives for us, that's why we have the privilege to enjoy days like today," says Schmaltz.
Days that allow you the choice to spend it playing horseshoes or a friendly game of croquet. Jennifer Murphy's husband served in Desert Storm. She considers herself lucky. He came back home.
She says, "Fortunately I don't know what it's like to loose a loved one to war, but I would just say thank you that they are doing such a great service and honoring our country."
