Friday Updates

  • The Town of Durham New Hampshire
    Monday, May 25th is Memorial Day. The origins of Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, lie in the Civil War. Southern women laid claim to the custom of a day set aside to decorate the graves of the war dead. Union veterans laid claim to a specific date, May 30th, but it wasn't until after World War II that North and South were willing to observe Memorial Day on the same date. If you are observing the weekend as most Americans do as the semi-official start of the summer vacation season, please pause occasionally to reflect on the meaning of the holiday. (See more on Durham's planned Memorial Day ceremonies below.) If you know of others within the community who might want information about Memorial Day in Durham, please forward this edition of the "Friday Updates" along to them!
