How To Celebrate Memorial Day in Quarantine

Our Memorial Day will look a little different this year, and although we will miss being out with friends on the boat or at a backyard BBQ; quarantine presents an awesome time for us to reflect on what this holiday is really about – honoring the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Here are some great quarantine Memorial Day activities to remind us all why we celebrate this Monday.
