Memorial Day 2017

Yesterday was a busy day at the Miller Tree Inn.  Late in the afternoon, we tried to put up the patriotic red, white and blue decorations that will stay with us for Memorial Day, Flag Day and the 4th of July.  As hard as we tried, chaos reigned, and it was not until today that the decorations were completed.  Now we are ready for our holiday weekend guests and for the beginning of summer.

Today we have time to reflect and remember what Memorial Day is all about.  It is not just a 3 day weekend and the "kick off" for the summer season.  It is a day to think about and appreciate the sacrifices that many made for us and for our country.  Many gave all that they had and their families continue to suffer.  It is humbling and hopefully inspires all of us to live lives worthy of their sacrifice.
