The Weekender: Fallen Soldiers Remembered, Pools Opening
Memorial Day Weekend is upon us with a bounty of parades and pool openings — and at least one indoor event.
It's the unofficial start of summer.
This weekend you'll see everything from bathing suits to the American Flag flying high for our Veterans. It's a time to remember all those who have served our country and those who still are on active duty.
