“Originally called Decoration Day, from the early tradition of decorating graves with flowers, wreaths and flags, Memorial Day is a day for remembrance of those who have died in service to our country.” –

No matter how you are spending your day, we encourage you to take a moment to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Do you know why the poppy is the official flower of Memorial Day?

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
