Memorial Day

By in Holidays with 0 Comments

There is a wonderful book called Emily of Deep Valley, by Maud Hart Lovelace. It begins close to Memorial Day, which at the time was called Decoration Day.

I wish we’d go back to calling it Decoration Day, actually. I think it would help remind us how and why the day was set aside. Read more here –

I hope that whether you’re working, or off from work today, you pause for a moment and remember those who gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today.

About The Author
Cari McGee

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
