Being a Brownie scout meant lots of things - crafts, games, fun snacks and one of the biggest thrills - marching in the Memorial Day Parade. It was a day off from school, the beginning of summer and a chance to be with our little girlfriends.We all carried little flags and someone got to carry the big flag - sometimes me, my mom was the leader and I would beg her to pick me. We would march down Main Street in Farmingdale, New York, very proud, smiling and full of giggles. We knew what the holiday stood for, but for us little kids, it was more of a day of fun.
and Happy Memorial Day!
