Happy Memorial Day

The unofficial start of summer is upon us. Memorial day signals time for families to go out camping, enjoying outdoor activities, grilling, and picnicking. But it’s also time to reflect and honor those that served, continue to serve, and those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Please take a moment and remember them while participating in your summertime activities this weekend.

Goin’ Postal

Memorial Day is all about flying the flag proudly and remembering those who served our country. But nothing can bug me more than seeing an American Flag in tatters. The same is true for Goin’ Postal. That’s why they have a flag replacement project. Come to the Goin’ Postal store in Wausau with your old American flag (at least 2×3 feet in size) and they will swap it out with a brand new flag. They will also make sure that your old flag will be properly disposed of in a proper manner. Some restrictions do apply, so contact the store for details.
