Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday in May. It is a day of remembrance for the one million plus men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. The day of remembrance began in 1868 following the Civil War and became a national holiday in 1971. Traditionally, the U.S. flag is raised quickly to the top of the staff on Memorial Day morning, then lowered to half- staff where it remains until noon and then returned to full staff to commemorate the sacrifices made by others in the service of our country. Today Americans pay tribute to those who have fallen with local ceremonies, parades, picnics, outdoor concerts, fireworks. Monday being a holiday, the lakes and sea shores are crowded with boaters, jet skiers, water skiers, and families enjoying a day at the beach if the weather cooperates. National and International sports (tennis, baseball, golf, soccer, motor racing, etc.) are in full swing of their seasons. It appears to be the unofficial beginning of summer – gas grills and table umbrellas are getting cleaned, new cushions for the outdoor patio furniture, pools cleaned, lawns mowed, landscaping done and vacations planned.
