Memorial Day Weekend 2017 Part II

Memorial Day Part II

Thoughts and pictures by UseppaGin

We don’t have a parade.  There are no speeches.  But we celebrate Memorial Day in our own way on Useppa.

The Cookie Brigade baked chocolate chip cookies for veterans and drew pictures to say thank you to the Island men and women who served our country.  Alone or in small groups we remembered those who died in the military.

And then, a band played at the pool.  The Collier Inn offered a brunch lunch.  Boats came  and went from the marina filled with people celebrating the holiday.  Other boats dropped anchor or tied up at the Collier Dock.

Red, White, and Blue everywhere, Memorial Day weekend.  Moments of remembrance and love filled hours of friends and family.
