If a parade is not your thing, be sure to see what is happening at George Washington's Headquarters. See the museum and learn more about the history of our county. Early beginnings of our country happened right here in Newburgh. A very interesting presentation on Memorial Day.
However you choose to spend the day, be happy, be safe and say thank you to the next US Service person you see. They do appreciate it more than you know, and will remember it always.
A Thank You note to all that continue to serve and make the USA the Best!!
