Hi Adventure Philanthropists!
 
Hope your Memorial Day weekend is off to a great start!

In America, Memorial Day is a national holiday set aside to remember our fallen soldiers from wars past. Many people visit the graves of military service members, placing a flag on the headstone to commemorate their service to our country.

The 3-day holiday is also seen as the kickoff weekend for summertime festivities. So grab a beach chair, sunscreen and your summer reading list and head to your nearest body of water!
 
Just starting to compile your summer reading list? Don’t forget to include my book: Adventure Philanthropist: Great Adventures Volunteering Abroad available in print and to download from Lulu.com and Amazon

This weekend, I hope you get out and bask in the warmth of the sun and your friends!

Me? I’m heading to Napa for a little relaxation—the pool, the spa, and the vineyards await!

See ya on the road,
