Enjoy this 2016 Traditionally on May 30, 2016 Memorial Day Celebration

submitted 192 days ago by CouponNut in "Member's Lounge"
Salute to our Military, Veterans and our Fallen Heros who courageously served and fought for the freedom of our country giving the people of the United States of America over 100 hundreds of remembrance.

Traditionally Decoration Day, now known as Memorial Day, was always observed on May 30th no matter what day of the week since May 30, 1868 for over 100 years. However, in 1971, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act to change certain holiday dates to be observed on Mondays to give the Federal Government a three day weekend. On this day, May 30th, we continue to honor, remember and rejoice

>>>>>

Memorial Day started as an event to honor Union soldiers, who had died during the American Civil War. It was inspired by the way people in the Southern states honored their dead. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women, who died in any war or military action.


Hope everyone has a SAFE holiday and take a silent moment to remember and hnor those who served from our community and our country. Enjoy the day filled with festivities, parades and meeting those who share their story.
