Memorial Day is more than just a kick-off to summer. It’s an important day to remember those who have served our nation in the armed forces. What a great opportunity it is to teach our kids about having pride in our country and being grateful for the many men and women who have made sacrifices for us. This year, on Monday, May 27th, your family can join one of the many Memorial Day parades and ceremonies in McHenry County and honor the heroes who have made America the country we love.
