Happy Memorial Day!

We just wanted to take a minute and wish you all a Happy Memorial Day!  Fly your flag high and proud today!!!!  We would not live in this great country if it were not for the sacrifice of the brave men and women who gave their lives to protect it.

Today is a GREAT day to spend with our families: camping, playing baseball, picnicking, getting amazing sales at stores……but have you taught your family the reason we celebrate Memorial Day??

Memorial Day was originally conceived as a day to remember Civil War dead.  After World War I it was changed to include all who died in battle. Let’s not forget the reason we celebrate this holiday! 

We are so thankful for our freedom and for the people who have died protecting it!!!
