Worcester Area Memorial Day 2011

Worcester Telegram Memorial Day Videos

It looks like this Memorial Day Weekend for 2011 is going to be good weather for a change. The Worcester Telegram had a couple of good videos on Memorial Day. The first shows the meaning of the holiday that may sometimes be lost as we focus on the unofficial kickoff of the summer.

Sadly the National WWII Museum came out with the results of a poll which estimated that 80 percent of Americans do not really know what the meaning of Memorial Day is. They put together a good website MyMemorialDay.org that gives some good ideas for observing the holiday including the planting of flags in the following video.

The second video is about Memorial Day on Lake Quinsigamond last year. We can only hope that this year’s weather is that good.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend. May there be cookouts, fun and time for reflection…there is also the annual Wool Days at Old Sturbridge Village too.
