Memorial Day Edition
May is the month where our thoughts go to gardens growing with spring in full bloom! Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday of May. We will be forever grateful and never forget the sacrifices of our brave warriors that have made our way of life possible. Memorial weekend is a time to reflect, honor, and remember the men and women who died to give us the very freedom and peaceful life we have in the U.S. We honor all Veterans who served and are still serving to keep us free.

Quilts of Valor
Several local groups have already started working on the quilts of valor that will be presented to our 2016 Warrior Families. The Serendipity Shop will collect and finish the Quilts of Valor over the next several months. Anyone interested in supporting this effort is welcomed to join in on the Quilt of Valor Days at the Serendipity Shop. The Shop has all the materials and sewing machines needed for this effort. And they will show you how to sew a straight line if you have not done so before. Many Soldiers from Dover join in on this effort and it is a lot of fun. So mark your calendars for June 11th and/or August 13th for Quilt of Valor Day at the Serendipity shop. Don’t miss a fun time! Anyone welcome!
