Unofficial kickoff to summer just around the corner

Memorial Day is fast approaching and for many the holiday is not only an opportunity to honor those who have died in service of our country, but a chance to come together with family and friends to mark the unofficial beginning of summer.

For Human Resources Director Megan Sandoval, this Memorial Day will be the fourth in a row that she and her husband will pack up their two sons (along with their dog, Rocco) and head for the great outdoors.

“We usually take our camper and pick a place where we can spend our weekend being outdoors, enjoy nature and disengage from technology and our crazy, hectic life,” said Megan.

That doesn’t mean that Megan and her family will spend the weekend just sitting around—if past Memorial Day weekends are any indication, there’s sure to be plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained and having fun.

“We camp out and cook, make s’mores, fish, kayak and swim,” said Megan. “My little one (age six) takes his scooter and scooters his way around the whole camp.”

But no matter what they’re doing, for Megan, the most important thing is that they’re all together.

“I’m just looking forward to spending quality time with the family out in nature and doing stuff together we can all enjoy,” said Megan.
