Memorial Day Weekend

on May 23, 2014

Today marks the eve of one of the most celebrated weekends in America…Memorial Day Weekend! This weekend commemorates a beginning as well as an end. It is anything and everything red, white and blue.

As you are out and about this weekend…shopping, visiting, picnicking, bar-b-queuing – remain mindful of the importance of remembering what this weekend is all about, especially on Monday, May 26, 2014. Be sure to pay particular attention to whether an American flag is flying or if a sign is displayed in store windows in honor and respect of our fallen soldiers. If one is not visible, I challenge you to ask WHY not?

  3. Nice to remember this really isn’t just a long weekend for barbecuing.

    Has everyone forgotten it was originally about World War 1? Red poppies?

    Anyway, we used to have a flag pole, but when we put up new siding, we lost our flag pole and I’ve never figured out how to put another up without cutting up the siding. You can’t always judge by appearance.
