We observe Memorial Day on May 26th. Although a Gallup Poll has shown that very few of us (28%) actually know what this day is about, it really isn’t just a day off from work and school!
The White House Commission on Remembrance has information about the Congressionally-established National Moment of Remembrance (3 pm on Memorial Day).
The General Services Adminstration’s USA.gov site has links to information about the day as well links to practical information for those of us who will be grilling, boating, etc.
Finally, if you’re in Whitewater on the 26th you can watch the parade (begins on Main St. at First Citizens Bank).
The University Library is a federal depository with many federal, state, local, and international documents on a variety of current and relevant issues available to you in print, microfiche, CD-ROM, and electronically. Come check out your government at the University Library!
