Can you believe this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend, already?
We feel it is the unofficial start to summer and we are so proud to wear our Red, White and Blue and honor and remember those who serve and who have served our country and have fought for our freedoms. We love and appreciate you all and your families for your sacrifices! THANK YOU!
How will you spend your three day weekend? Will you attend local events? Head to a parade? or go away?
We have a great list of things you and your family can do this weekend. See below…
