Remember Fallen Soldiers at 2022 Memorial Day Parades and Ceremonies

Outdoor Places to Go

Memorial Day parades and ceremonies are an important way our communities honor members of the armed forces who are no longer with us. As we wave to parade marshals and listen to the national anthem, we find ourselves in a teachable moment. No matter how young or old, our children may not realize the sacrifices many brave men and women make to serve our country. As you take part in one of the Memorial Day events listed below, we hope you find a way to talk to your children about how important this day is to our country.
