MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2020 is MAY 23, 24, and Monday the 25th. We as Americans celebrate this weekend to remember our Veteran hero's who served in the armed forces, many of them gave thier lives to protect your freedom. This year will be different. But there are many things you can do in our beautiful Ozarks to get out of the house and still celebrate Memorial Day 2020.
