1.) Ft. Sill National Cemetery Memorial Day Program

2648 NE Jake Dunn Rd, Elgin

Let’s not forget the reason for Memorial Day! Sure, it’s the unofficial kick-off to summer, filled with backyard barbecues and time spent at the lake. But the real reason we have Memorial Day – this federal holiday formerly known as Decoration Day – is to commemorate U. S. soldiers who have died while in the military service. The Ft. Sill National Cemetery Memorial Day Program is a great way to honor those military members who have served our country. The program starts Monday (Memorial Day) at 10am and is sponsored by the Comanche County Veterans Council. Call 918) 478-2334 for more info.

Any backyard with a decent grill

No matter what you have planned during the long holiday weekend, I bet you can find time to throw something on the grill. Burgers, brats, chicken, ribs, steaks – whatever it is, it always seems to taste better comin’ off the grill. Happy grilling!
