C'mon, Summer!

All you seasonal purists, please cut me a little slack here. I know it’s not really summer until the solstice on June 21st, but Memorial Day weekend means “summer” to me. I’ll be firing up the grill and, I hope, attending my town’s Memorial Day parade and commemoration.

Most sites on the PA Trails of History will be open on Memorial Day (be sure to check the schedule). And Memorial Day kicks off the annual Blue Star Museums program, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense. Participating museums offer free admission to active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day to Labor Day. PA Trails of History sites offer military families free admission year-round, and we are pleased and proud to participate in the Blue Star Museums program again this summer.

In related news, First Lady (and First Tourist) Susan Corbett's Facebook page included a post yesterday afternoon encouraging people to visit the Pennsylvania Military Museum this weekend for "World War II Revisited," which features encampments, tactical demonstrations, and "Letters from Home," an Andrews Sisters Tribute Show.
