Happy Memorial Day Weekend - 2018!

As we enjoy this special 3 day weekend, it's a good time to reflect and give tribute to those Veterans who have given their lives to serve our country. We can never repay their sacrifice, but we must pray earnestly for our leaders and those who serve our country today. We are certainly blessed to live in the "land of the free and the home of the brave."

If you're relaxing at home this weekend, vacationing, or visiting with family and friends, there are some specials you may not want to miss...
