Dh is a veteran and our oldest son is in the Army. This weekend is very special time for us. Dh and I will be helping the local VFW sell Poppy's at local vendors over the weekend. Poppy sales help give money to local veteran hospital and clinics. It also helps active duty and veteran families that need help. We will not be participating in the Parade this year. This will be the first year in many. We have decided to watch it this year instead. On Monday we will have a small cook out with the kids and some friends. We will watch the 2 car races on tv.

Weather permitting we will fly our flag out front. I have flags in my front window all year, one for each friend or family member currently serving. I have to work the whole weekend, but I'm sure we will grill out as well.

We usually open our cottage on the island in Maine on Memorial Day weekend. That includes getting the running water working, putting in the planking on the dock, airing out the cottage, other odds and ends plus sitting in the sun on the dock and swimming if it isn't too cold!

The local VFW has there Poppy Campaign going this weekend. The donations go to help current military and veterans. Alot of the money goes to VA hospitals.

Dh and I help stand at local stores to take donations over the weekend. I will be out for a few hours on Saturday. Dh will be out both Saturday and Sunday.

Monday is the Memorial Day Parade. The VFW has there huge funraiser that evening with a dinner and money drawling. Dh and I sell tickets for that and go help.

We have a very busy weekend.
