MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Start of Memorial Day weekend

It’s a chilly morning. The sky is overcast and the air and ground damp from Thursday’s showers. Fortunately, we have clearance arriving with better weather for the Memorial Day weekend which commences the official start of summer.

Today I have a few items to attend to and then a movie. Saturday, I work until 7:00 PM and at 8:00 PM I will walk a block to the Fraze Pavilion to see the comedic duo, Steve Martin and Martin Short, thanks to Jim & Sherrie Weyrauch.

As a child, every Friday before Memorial Day we’d travel to Forrestville, Sunset, and Elwood cemeteries to place flowers on love ones’ graves. If there were veterans, we added a US flag.

This Sunday is the return of the Carillon Park Heritage Day Festival that has had a two year gap in its ten plus years in the running. It’s my favorite event because I’m surrounded by music and history. The Carillon Park Band and Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will headline the music performances.

It’s a full weekend followed by a few days at the park and no teaching for the week. Figuring out a mowing the yard plan will take some juggling.

Whatever the launch of your long weekend includes, make it a great day.
