Memorial Day marks the unofficial beginning of summer. Things might look a little different this year, but that's no reason not to enjoy the warmer weather by spending some time outside. Plan a float trip, quick getaway to a popular Midwest city or find a local celebration. Make sure you call ahead or contact venues to check that event details haven't changed, and take sensible steps to stick to the reopening steps outlined by the Springfield-Greene County Health Department.
