Memorial Day is almost here. This day is typically considered the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end. Here at the Quarterdeck we are ready and looking forward to a great Memorial Day weekend, followed by a fantastic summer season.
However, in the midst of all the celebrating we do not forget the true meaning of Memorial Day, a day to honor all the Americans who died while in the military service. In Venice the American Legion Post 159 and the Marine Corps will host an annual Memorial Day ceremony, joined local veteran’s organizations. The ceremony takes place at 10 a.m. in Patriots Park (800 Venetia Bay Blvd., Venice).
