This weekend is the Memorial Day Weekend. Speaking with TomBuck earlier this week, he tells me his community goes out to the cemetery to honor all the local war veterans, alive or dead. In a close-knit community, this is just one of the many instances when people connect. One of the nice things about smaller towns.
What Tom said prompted me to see what’s going in the Los Angeles area. If you don’t already have plans, considering do a search to see what’s going on in your area. I found lots of interesting, fun, or somber activities within less than a 5-mile radius. And even more within 10 miles.
Another thing I found is that the Queen Mary is offering free admission to veterans and active members of the armed forces. Excellent idea! I’ll bet there are many places offering free admission to current or former members of the armed forces all over the country. Considering how many returning servicemen and women are out of work, or under-employed, take advantage of these opportunities to take your families on a delightful outing.
You’ve heard enough about taxes already so far this year. So, go and give yourself a break. We all need it.
