Memorial Day

It is Memorial Day and you may have the day off. You may be having a barbecue or taking a hike and you may be remembering someone who died in a war. These days, fewer and fewer of us have been touched by war, even though we have been engaged in war for more than a decade now. Since the draft was ended in 1973, we have had what is called an “all volunteer military”, which effectively means that only about 1% of the population sees combat. Maybe you have known people who died at war and maybe you don’t. Either way, take a moment between the barbecue, the pie and the Memorial Day sales to remember.

If you do need pie, we are open our regular hours from 9-8 today.
