Memorial Day Weekend on Cape Cod

It's almost here! Memorial Day weekend, the almost official kick-off to summer on Cape Cod, is just around the corner. If you haven't been to the Cape in awhile, the Sagamore Rotary is no longer, and the Sagamore Fly-Over project is now complete. For more information on the new route onto and off of the Cape, see the Cape Cod Times web site. The Cape Cod Times has put together three great videos to provide an in-depth review of the Sagamore Fly-Over.

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is observed this year on Monday, May 28th. You might choose to celebrate this day, honoring those who have died in service to our nation, by flying the American flag at half-staff until noon. Some also choose to fly the POW/MIA flag, in addition to the American flag at half-staff. Others visit the graves of the fallen and decorate them with flowers and tokens of our remembrance.

For more information on the American flag, and laws relating to it, please see the "Flag Rules and Regulations" information available on
