I have to admit that I sometimes stray into the celebration of the “weekend” portion of Memorial Day Weekend. But I can’t and won’t ever forget why we have such a weekend and why we have the freedom to celebrate and enjoy ourselves every weekend. I do love freedom and I happily and wholeheartedly say thank you to all veterans here and beyond.
Our city is without question a military town. As such we have built a fine and fitting tribute to our fallen heroes. If you have never visited our Veterans Memorial Wall Downtown, I highly recommend it. Here are some ways to pay tribute on Memorial Day here in North Florida.
