A few years after the end of the Civil War, May 30 was established as “Decoration Day” — a day to decorate veterans’ graves with flowers. May 30 may have been the selected day because flowers would be in bloom throughout the country.
In 1971, Memorial Day was officially declared a national holiday and placed on the last Monday in May.
In December 2000, the president signed into law The National Moment of Remembrance Act.
“The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.”
Please join us today in saying a prayer for the veterans and their families who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Wisconsin has seen record heat this summer, but what better way to cool off than to sit on the boathouse deck at the Angel Inn and take in the annual Water Ski show! A few of our guests were doing just that earlier this evening. A hot Air Balloon even decided to join in the fun!
It was a gorgeous weekend in Green Lake and several of our guests had fun exploring Green Lake on our bicycle built for two and our Adult Tricycle cruisers. There are several bike routes available around Green Lake, but the one our guests enjoyed the most was the jaunt to Bayview Landing Ice Cream Parlor! Check it out on your next visit to Angel Inn!
With temperatures reaching the 90′s this weekend, people are flocking to Wisconsin lakes to escape the heat! This morning Angel Inn guests strolled a few short steps down to the boathouse deck to enjoy the cool lake breeze while enjoying one of Kathy’s fabulous breakfasts. Choices this morning included fresh fruit and a lemon poppy seed coffee cake, along with the main breakfast entrees of door county cherry French toast and egg croissant with Havarti dill cheese & granny smith apple

The Women’s U.S. Open returns to Blackwolf Run July 2-8, 2012 in Kohler, Wisconsin. The last time the Women’s U.S. Open was played there in 1998 – rookie Se Re Pak survived to win a 20 hole play-off. My most vivid memory of that event was Nancy Lopez and her playing partners walking up the 18th fairway at the end of their 2nd round waving white flags on the end of their clubs as they all missed the cut at the very difficult lay-out. Kohler is an easy 75 minute drive from Angel Inn in Green Lake, Wisconsin. So if your destination is Kohler during that 4th of July week, and you are looking for lodging at the Women’s U.S. Open check us out! http://www.usga.org/ChampEventSite.aspx?id=2147487117

If you enjoy a good scavenger hunt you may want to join in the fun! Lodging available at Angel Inn Green Lake, WI for this annual event.
We are so pleased to be featured in this month’s issue of Midwest Living. This is a fantastic time of year to visit Green Lake, WI as it comes alive with the signs of spring. Please check our specials page for mid-week stays.
Spring is almost here, and that means it’s time to start thinking about the garden. We are planning on expanding our planting area this year to include our neighbor’s yard (hope they don’t notice!!).
What about you? What are you planning to do this year in your garden?
