Memorial Day is a day where we first and foremost honor the men and women that have died while serving in the military to protect our country. Many of us have this holiday off of work and look forward to celebrating. I have a list of a few different events going on this Memorial Day. I hope that while we are all enjoying our day, we keep all those men and women in mind and realize that they made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in the country that we live in.

May 30, 2016 – 11am-5pm
Chatham Hill Winery and Event Venue – 8245 Chapel Hill Rd., Cary, NC 27513
“Stay-Cation? If so, hang around with us all weekend. We’ll be tasting wine, doing some touring of the winery, sampling wine from the tank and you can even bring your lawn chair and relax in the ‘vineyard’ (for us that means two rows of vines in the grass!) and chill. We’ll have BBQ sandwiches available for purchase Saturday and Sunday and we’ll be firing up the Wine Slushy machine!
WE ARE OPEN on Monday, Memorial Day from 11 to 5 with winery tours at 12:30 and 3:30. We have a special treat in store! In addition to the above, enjoy the incredible food of Geronimo Food Truck for traditional Filipino home style cooking (menu). We’ll be firing up the Wine Slushy machine! So come by and have fun with us.”
And then there is always Jordan Lake! Even if you don’t have a boat, you can enjoy the beautiful lake by going to one of the beaches, hiking, grilling out or getting a campsite.
Thank you to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice and to those who continue to serve. You, your families and friends are in our hearts!
