Memorial Day Events

Memorial Day in the U.S.A. brings many things to mind.  First and foremost, we think of those in the military who do and have served and protected our nation.  And to every one of those people, we extend our deepest and sincerest gratitude.

On the less serious side, Memorial Day marks the unofficial start to summer.  A time when we expect the sun to shine and the thermometer to rise.  For pools to open, and grills to fire up.  For friends and family to gather, and communities to shine.

There’s a TON of fun stuff to do this weekend here in our neck of southeast Michigan.  Plymouth, Canton, and Northville MI have got great events with something for everyone.  Here’s our list of things to do in our amazing communities this weekend, so get out your calendar and your pencil (or electronic gadget)!
