Today begins Memorial Day weekend, the traditional kick off of the summer season. It means so much more to us than that. We are very appreciative of the sacrifices that members of the armed services and their families have made on the behalf of our nation and our citizens. I am proud to say that my Dad served in the US Navy during World War II and the Korean Conflict. Not a day goes by that we don't miss him. Thanks, Dad!
The colors will stay up as we celebrate Flag Day on June 14 and the 4th of July, our nation's birthday. Here in Forks, the 4th is our town's annual big celebration. There will be a parade, salmon BBQ, Demo Derby, games in the park and fireworks to end the day. There is always an arts and crafts show, fun run and kids play day during the weekend. Come on over and help us celebrate! As of today (May 22) we still have a few rooms left scattered throughout the weekend.
