Barbecues, sales, and the true meaning of Memorial Day

Lions Clubs and Lions around the country take part in Memorial Day observances in various ways-flying American flags in their cities and towns, placing flags on Veterans' graves, and attending ceremonies.  When Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971, it became a 3-day weekend to camp, barbecue, shop, and quite often forget instead of remember those who gave their lives for our country.  As Lions, and Americans, let's take more than a moment to remember...and give honor to the thousands who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Flags dot cemeteries around country.

The American Legion honors those who have given their lives.

Never forget...
