Ashley Furniture Industries honored Memorial Day by holding a flag-raising ceremony at each of its manufacturing facilities in the U.S. on Wednesday, May 24. Ashley executives from California, Florida, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin, along with members of their local military groups, provided the ceremony to remember those who served our country to reflect on the true meaning of Memorial Day for Ashley employees and guests.
“While only one day of the year is dedicated to honoring our veterans, we must never forget the sacrifices many have made to defend our country and protect our freedom,” said Bert Cartrette, senior director of Ashley Furniture Distribution Center. “I am truly honored to be a part of Ashley Furniture’s patriotic observances.”
“The staff in Verona, Miss., would like to honor those veterans who have given us the opportunity to manufacture our product right here in the U.S,” said David “Scott” Weatherly, lean six sigma advisor.
Following the flag-raising ceremony, a moment of silence was held to honor the brave men and women who have died throughout history, while serving in the U.S. military.
“On Monday, people throughout the country will gather together to remember, to honor, and to pay gratitude to those who have paid the ultimate price in service to their country,” said Todd Wanek, president and CEO of Ashley Furniture Industries. “Ashley’s gathering was just one small way we can honor and recognize those brave individuals locally.”
