Memorial Day Weekend Guide

Your Memorial Day weekend guide has arrived!

The weather forecast right now for your Memorial Day weekend 2018 looks to be steamy! You’ll find us out on the lake one or more of the days this weekend. We can’t wait!! Plus, the beaches will be open and pools, too! And don’t forget about the Hartland Splash Pad! Lake Country Family Fun has so many great ideas for what to do this holiday weekend to keep you cool! But it’s important to remember what the Waukesha Salvation Army wrote,

“As is said, “This coming weekend isn’t National Grill Out Day.” Indeed, it’s the national observance of Memorial Day, honoring the memory of all men and women who have sacrificed their lives in our nation’s wars and in military service…Do enjoy the day and the extended weekend, but also, please remember to say a prayer for those serving, for those who have served, and especially for the souls of those who have died serving. Thank you!”

What a great reminder as we embark on this extended holiday weekend.

ICYMI: Lake Country Family Fun team member Stephanie, celebrated her boys’ birthday party at Goldfish Swim School. She interviewed them and I just love how they answered her!
