Memorial Day


When most of us think about Memorial Day the first thing that pops in our mind is barbeque's with family and friends, a three day weekend and the beginning of summer. This federal holiday, which is a day of remembrance for those who died in our nation's service, was originally known as Decoration Day. Please take a moment this weekend and remember the men and women who sacrificed everything for this great nation. Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend while being mindful of our fallen.
