Weekend Hotel Room Specials

Dear Readers,

Memorial Day Weekend is nearly upon us, and The Eagle Inn would like to take a moment to honor the fallen soldiers who fought so bravely for this beautiful country. The Eagle Inn would be extremely proud to have all former and current veterans visit us on Memorial Day weekend, so we are offering a special on our standup paddling lessons or harbor kayaking to anyone with a military ID. Enjoy either of these activities for $89 on this year’s sunny Memorial Day weekend.

A somber holiday in its conception and tradition, Memorial Day has evolved as a holiday that we often spend with the family outside around the grill, but before you get the charcoal and lighter fluid out, The Eagle Inn would like to take a moment to revisit the history of the holiday. Inspired by our soldiers’ dedication and bravery, we would like to honor them by remembering the importance of the holiday.

Never Forget: There are over a quarter million soldiers buried in Arlington Cemetery with an average of 28 burials a day. We will never forget their sacrifices.

Moment of Silence: In 2000 Congress passed a law requiring all Americans to drop what they are doing at 3pm on Memorial Day to honor our fallen soldiers. You can be certain all of us at The Eagle Inn will be paying our respect at that time.

Old Glory: Remember on Memorial Day it is tradition to fly the flag at half-staff until noon and then raise it to full staff in the afternoon.

Veteran’s Day vs Memorial Day: Often the two are confused. Veteran’s Day honors all US military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who gave their lives while serving.

A United Country: Memorial Day wasn’t the original name of the holiday. It was Dedication Day, and it began after the Civil War to honor those who died.

Costly Price: We lost 620,000 soldiers during the Civil War. That’s more than WWI, WWII, and the Korean War combined. The high death toll was a result of Americans fighting on both sides of the war.
