Memorial Day Weekend 2012

It’s been only two days since commencement. All is relatively quiet on campus, except for the buzzing of summer session and the highly active volunteers gathering, sorting and preparing for the MoveOut South Side Sale (coming next week.)

As we head into the “unofficial” start of summer this Memorial Day weekend, try to find time to remember the original intentions of Memorial Day: a day of remembrance for those who died in service to our country.

If you are staying in town for the weekend,

consider visiting SteelStacks for their Memorial Day celebrations to honor servicemen and women (May 26-28)

Local servicemen and women who have lost their lives while serving and protecting our nation will be honored during the Memorial Day Celebration presented by Embassy Bank at SteelStacks May 26-28. The weekend-long event, which will also pay tribute to veterans and active members of the U.S. Armed Forces, will feature a memorial service on Memorial Day, as well as patriotic and family-focused programming throughout the weekend. More than 200 images of local veterans and active military personnel will also be on display on the SteelStacks campus as part of the “Our Hometown Heroes” display.

As a way of giving back to those who have given so much to protect and serve our nation over the years, Embassy Bank is also offering veterans and active servicemen and women the opportunity to take advantage of a special Buy One Ticket, Get One Ticket Free offer to select concerts at the ArtsQuest Center’s Musikfest Café, 101 Founders Way, Bethlehem. The offer is available only for walk-up ticket purchases at the ArtsQuest Center, as well as at ArtsQuest’s Banana Factory, 25. W Third St., Bethlehem. Please spread the word.
