Memorial Day Weekend Events

As Memorial Day Weekend approaches, it brings with it the family gatherings, backyard barbeques, and sunny beachside afternoons. While we are making our plans for the long weekend, it’s important to take a moment to reflect on the meaning of the holiday, and take time to pay tribute to the brave individuals who served our nation and made the ultimate sacrifice. Here are some great local events designed to honor and give gratitude to those lost:
