Memorial Day is a special day for many reasons. For many, it is the day that summer officially begins. Pools begin to open, it’s finally acceptable to wear white pants again, backyard cookouts are in full swing. But more importantly, it’s a day set aside to remember the service members who have sacrificed their lives protecting our freedom. To honor these brave men and women, we wear patriotic colors and wave our flag proudly. Here are a few patriotic projects that are perfect for your Memorial Day celebration.
