Observing Memorial Day
Memorial Day is much more than a three day weekend to kick off summer. It’s the day we remember those who have died while serving our country.
Today, May 30, the American Veterans Center is proud to announce the return of the National Memorial Day Parade Live on Constitution Ave, Washington DC starting at 2pm. Click here for more info: americanveteranscenter.org/avc-events/parade/

For other ideas to teach kids about this special day, check out Military.com’s post on Commemorating Memorial Day with Kids. It gives great suggestions, including making cards for soldiers overseas and going on an online scavenger hunt that helps kids learn about Memorial Day.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
