And please remember… while there is a plethora of fun happening around the rock, it’s MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND… and while we definitely celebrate this as the kick off to the summer season, Monday marks the day of remembrance for all those who have died in Military Service for our beautiful country. There a very touching parade that happens from Washington Street to Main Street on Monday. Take a moment and reflect at it. Be mindful. Be respectful. And take some time to think about how lucky we are to have all the freedoms that we do… because of the brave men and women that have gone before us.
Thank you for following along.
