We hope you all had a wonderful and memorable Memorial Day Weekend. This of course is the big kick-off to “The Season” here in Maine. We look forward to an exciting Summer with everything this beautiful state has to offer! Come visit us at either of our Company Stores located in amazing Maine destinations (details below). Most importantly, today we take pause to honor those who have served our country. Although the weather didn’t totally cooperate, festivities carried on to remember our beloved service men and women. Here are some scenes from the Bar Harbor Memorial Day Ceremony along the waterfront this morning. Also in honor of this day, we want to share an inspiring story we found on the Wounded Warrior amputee softball team.
On this Memorial Day, a moving story posted by USA Today and MLB Network:
For Memorial Day, MLB Network has the inspiring and beautiful story of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team, a competitive club comprised entirely of wounded U.S. military veterans. In the following clip, team members describe the fear and devastation that can come with life as a wounded veteran and the way playing softball helps them find normalcy.
