Memorial Day Weekend at Lake of the Ozarks



Memorial Day weekend is always a great time at the Lake of the Ozarks!  This three day weekend marks the beginning of summer for many people.  The Fran Campbell Team wants to take a moment to remember the history and meaning behind this day.

Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day, is a day set aside to honor all men and women who have died while serving the United States Armed Forces.  The holiday originated when Southern women organizations began decorating the graves of fallen Union soldiers after the American Civil War.  The tradition was picked up by other regions who also designated dates to pay tribute to their fallen troops.  The holiday was officially recognized by the United States on June 28, 1968 and expanded to honor all Americans that had lost their lives in any war or were missing in action.  The Uniform Holidays Bill was passed which officially recognized the holiday on the last Monday of May, creating a three day weekend.


We hope that while you celebrate and enjoy this extended weekend, you will also honor and reflect on the sacrifices of our United States Armed Forces.
