Happy Memorial Day!

Wow does time fly by! It seems like just yesterday that 2015’s peak season was coming to a close and now, this year’s is just beginning. Our staff at Arpin headquarters is all geared up and ready for the challenge!

As for this weekend, it’s a holiday that many Americans look forward to, Memorial Day. You probably know a few people that have travel plans and booking it to another state, but let’s not forget the true importance of the day.

Memorial Day is a time to remember all those in our military that have died serving our country. At first, the holiday was known as Decoration Day and originated in 1866 in Waterloo, NY to remember those that died during the Civil War. It wasn’t until 1971 that Memorial Day became an official national holiday.

CNN.com put up a great article that you can check out here regarding more of the travel aspects and what to expect if you’re on the move.

If you do have travel plans or something special going on this weekend, we hope you have fun and stay safe! On Monday, take a few minutes out of your day to remember our fallen heroes and the sacrifice they made for our country.

Enjoy!
