Memorial Day weekend is coming up, and while it also usually coincides with the end of the school year and therefore often involves some summertime travel, let’s not forget the meaning behind the holiday.

Memorial Day honors those who lost their lives while serving in our military, and there are multiple ways around town to show your support of those fallen heroes.
