Memorial Day Weekend - 2011

It's Memorial Day weekend, so certainly you are going to find something to get into, maybe even honor the fallen people who served our country and have died. Memorial Day was first observed on May 30, 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. It started as a way honor of our fallen heroes who died in battle. It now become a day to honor all the dead who served in our armed forces. I understand the Delmar VFW will have an observance of the day at their post at 1 pm on Sunday. Also on Sunday the traditional Sussex County Memorial Day Celebration will be at 1:30 p.m. on The Circle in Georgetown. On Monday, May 30 10:00 a.m. at the Wicomico War Memorial (Civic Center) there will also be an observance.

There's a lot to choose from this weekend, and the weather will be perfectly hot, so there's no reason to be cooped up in your house. Many of you also have a long weekend, so spend a little money for a gallon of gas and head to the beach after all Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of summer.

and there is a summer full of new sights and adventures

Or if not the beach there is;
The Hebron Carnival, since 1926 it has been going on.
Out in marsh of Somerset County is the Fairmount Academy Festival
or if you are at the beach go to the Ocean City Craft Show
and for myself I will probably go to the Seaford Heritage Weekend out at Gov. Ross Manor.
Go Camping
Or stay at home and fire up the barbecue.
