Weekly Fun Fact

Memorial Day

Although Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer to most, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. 

Traditionally, people visit cemeteries and memorials, and volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries. The custom of honoring ancestors by cleaning cemeteries and decorating graves is an ancient and worldwide tradition, but the specific origin of Memorial Day, or Decoration Day, as it was first known, is unclear.

This year honoring the fallen on Memorial Day may look different, but please take a moment to remember and send a loving note to those left behind. Check out this Memorial Day Tribute Video to help you reflect and honor our fallen.

major goal for the CassLocal.com project, was to make small business support as convenient as possible. If you have a small business, you know that job one, is to make your businesses as simple, and convenient as possible to interact with.
The Corona $1200 checks, are starting to arrive this week. We know that some fortunate Nebraskans are not desperate and might consider helping struggling small businesses, Churches and Non-Profit organizations with a donation or better yet buying Gift Cards. We encourage restaurants, bars, basically any small businesses to get a Gift Card account from companies like Square. This is a convenient way for fortunate Nebraskan's to inject life saving cash into the business, in echange for Goods and Services later when the storm passes. None of this is possible, unless you add your business or Organization to www.CassLocal.com free.
