Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day occurs on the last Monday in May each year. It was created to celebrate the lives lost from the armed forces. Those individuals who gave their life to protect the freedom and liberties that America enjoys. To them I say "Thank - You"

Memorial day normally sees large crowds, gatherings and food. This year, 2020 and the covid 19 quarantine things are not the same. While many are still looking to have a bit of fun the dangers during this unknown time are preventing the large gatherings. However, you and your family can prepare a meal and tell the young members of the family about those that served in the many wars. 

This year Memorial day occurs on May 25th... the same day as the national holiday known as brown bag it. So why not?? Me and my family have had the opportunity to head out and about and have a few different picnics. Yes we stay 6 feet apart from others and yes we still enjoy our selves. So why not make up a brown bag and have a bit of fun this Memorial Day 2020.

  1. I liked it when the holidays stayed on the date instead of moving them to Monday. Memorial Day is supposed to be May 30 and it is also my birthday. : )

  2. Oops, hope this isn't a duplicate. Hit the wrong key. I love homemade potato chips when I can get them in a restaurant. - Margy
