The purpose of the Cultural Conversations Friday e-mail blast is to provide various tidbits on Cultural and Linguistic Competence (CLC) activities, cultural discovery, interesting information about other cultures, how to be more culturally sensitive to others and updates on statistics and information that are relevant to the work the FAST TRAC system of care is doing with youth and families in Clermont County.


This Week's Cultural Conversation:

Memorial Day is Monday, May 26, 2014


Decoration Day or Memorial Day is a federal public holiday in the United States. Decoration Day is usually observed on the last Monday of May every year. This day is set aside to celebrate and honor United States men and women who have died serving their country in military. Memorial Day originally began to honor and celebrate Union Soldiers who died during the American Civil War. For many Americans, this day marks the start of summer. It is customary to fly the U.S. flag at half mast from sunrise until midday. Many people visit memorials and cemeteries, particularly to celebrate those brave Americans who have died serving their country in military. Many well wishers place an American flag on each grave in state cemeteries.
