This Memorial Day weekend, I hope that many of you have free time to spend time with family and friends, relaxing, working on yard projects (the weather forecast is for partly sunny with a chance of showers), barbecuing or going on a trip to enjoy our incredible state. As we enjoy this luxury of some free time, I do ask that we remember and celebrate the meaning of Memorial Day.
Every year, the last Monday of May is celebrated as Memorial Day in the United States. It is the day to remember those military men and women who died while serving, defending and fighting for our country and the values our country stands for. First observed in 1868, and called Decoration Day, this day was originally designated to honor American soldiers who lost their lives in the Civil War.
Please enjoy this festive weekend and be safe. As we celebrate Memorial Day, I will remember and honor those military members who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and for freedom around the world. As always, thank you to our current military members and our veterans for their service.
Please have a safe and fulfilling Memorial Day weekend and take a moment to think of those valiant soldiers who lost their lives to build the incredible country we have today. If I can help you with anything, or if you would like to let me know your thoughts, do not hesitate to contact me.
It is an honor to represent you.
