Memorial Day certainly is a day for celebration as well as reflection. Not only is it an opportunity to spend a relaxing long weekend with your loved ones, but it is also a chance for us to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have lost their lives in service to our country.
So whether you plan on spending your Memorial Day weekend relaxing on the beach or celebrating with friends, remember to take a moment to give thanks. Because today and every day we are in debt to those who have lost their lives to protect ours.
If you are unsure of how you’re planning on spending this Memorial Day weekend, here are a few ideas:
As part of the Piccolo Spoleto festival, the Charleston Community Band and the Columbia Community Band will come together for a special performance in tribute to fallen military heroes, veterans and current armed forces members. The solemn, yet uplifting concert includes service anthems, patriotic songs, and other inspiring works, including “Homeland,” “Bring Him Home,” and CMC’s signature piece, the “Armed Forces Medley.”
Focusing primarily on artists of the Southeast region, Piccolo Spoleto is the perfect complement to the international scope of Spoleto Festival USA, its parent festival, and its 700 events in 17 days transforms Charleston into an exhilarating celebration of performing, literary and visual arts.
Kick off the season for white fashion by stopping by O-Ku for their White Party on Sunday, May 28! The evening will include drink specials, passed hors d’ouevres, DJ Natty Heavy, free swag, and a $100 gift card and cash prize for best-dressed male and female in all white.
