We all think of Memorial Day as the beginning of summer and Labor Day as the ending weekend of summer and typically mark these events with get-togethers and bar-b-ques. But not many people know that the first Memorial Day was celebrated on May 1, 1865 in remembrance of the Civil War dead. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans that died in all wars. 

A word of caution for those planning to spend this weekend on our beautiful, sun-drenched beaches on the First Coast. Dr. Lewis Obi reminds you to refer to his April 17th blog regarding sunscreens and skin precautions and to keep yourself and loved ones safe from the harmful rays.

On behalf of everyone from Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic, we wish you a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend!
