Monday May 27, 2019 is Memorial Day. Memorial Day is an American holiday honoring those who died while serving in the US Military. It was originally known as Decoration day, and started after the Civil War. Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971 and has sparked many traditions.
Everyone has a different tradition for Memorial Day. Parades, visiting cemeteries and family gatherings are a few of the top choices. Memorial Day has become the unofficial kick off to summer. Many families will have BBQs, go on a trip, or even spend some time on the water. Regardless of your choice of observation, make sure to take a moment and remember the meaning of the day.
Our office will be closed in observation. From our family to yours, have a great and safe Memorial Day.
