The start of summer vacation time is upon us! In the northeast, we have had weeks of cool weather — so now, many of us are looking at the calendar and are surprised to see the end of May is here! But that appears to be changing this week with 80 degree temps arriving right on time for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Memorial Day this year is May 30. Many communities have parades and activities of remembrance to honor those who have died serving in the U.S. military. Some of us may remember this day as Decoration Day and going to the cemetery to place American flags and fresh flowers on service members grave sites.
June 14 is Flag Day in the U.S. This day commemorates the first U.S. flag in 1777 that included stars and stripes. Many communities display American flags on this day of remembrance.
July 4th is more than a day off work and fireworks. Also known as Independence Day, this holiday celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence from England in 1776. This day also a time to display American flags throughout the country.
A Bit of Country does have flags to display on these special flag holidays and everyday. Stop in to see our selection, or call with questions.
