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.
