Memorial Day

For many of us, Memorial Day means the beginning of the summer season and maybe a day off from work.


Memorial Day is actually a day of remembrance for all the men and women who have died in military service. Originally called Decoration Day, it was enacted to honor soldiers of the Civil War. After World War I, this day of remembrance was extended to honor those who died in all wars.



As we enjoy our weekend, let us remember with gratitude.
